Fitness Careers, Where Do I Go From Here?
As many people in service industries do, fitness professionals often tumble headfirst into the fitness industry excited to make a difference in the lives of those around them. Whether you were a new college graduate or following your passion with a second career, you may not have had a 10-year career plan in place when you took the plunge into the fitness profession. Once you’ve been in a career path for a few years, you may choose to dive deeper to become an expert in your current role, seek an opportunity to advance to a higher role, or perhaps try something entirely new. Even after this decision has been made, the path may not be clear how to actually do what you want to do next. Let’s take a closer look at your options and what it takes to get there.
