According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “the employment of fitness trainers/instructors is expected to grow 8% from 2014-2024, and with the interest in prevention of chronic disease, there is a clear sustainability of the career.” That approximate rate of growth can also be expected in Canada.

Graduates will be on their way to opening their own business or fitness franchise or to take on employment in a fitness club, community centre, resort, day camp or cruise ship, among other opportunities.
