Turn Your Hobby Into a Money Making Machine

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2012) - Everyone has been hit hard by the recession and people are constantly trying to find new ways to make ends meet. But it might not be as hard as you think, in fact you could soon be making money in a way you probably didn't think possible: exercise. That's right, if you're a bit of a fitness geek, or are passionate about working out and training, then you should consider becoming a fitness instructor!

If you're really keen on health and fitness, then it only seems logical to turn this passion into a lucrative career, especially during a recession - it's an exciting, rewarding career path that won't see you sat stuck behind a desk all day long, so if this sounds like something you would be interested in, then read on.

Why is being a personal trainer so beneficial?

In recent years there has been a "fitness boom" which has seen thousands of people across the country who desperately want to lose weight, tone up and get healthy. Because of this, personal training has become one of the fastest growing industries in the world, so there's never been a better time to consider a career change in this direction.

As a personal trainer, you'll find a wealth of employment opportunities open to you. Many personal trainers choose to work in state-of-the-art leisure centres, gyms and health clubs and there are also many opportunities to work overseas and on cruise ships.

You also have the freedom to become your own boss - freelancing is an immensely popular route because it means you can choose when, where and how long you work, and can set your own competitive rates.

How do I become a personal trainer?

With personal training courses from the Training Room, you can complete a fast-track route to becoming a qualified personal trainer. If you've got other commitments, you can fit your studies around your job or personal commitments with a part-time personal training course.

So, if this sounds like your dream job, then don't delay - and soon you could be making money from your favourite hobby!
