Some discussion of personal trainers. Then discussion on how people are getting paid to work-out.
It is true that if Americans were paid to get into shape, our country would look quite different. More and more people are discovering the career of personal training, which makes it one of the fastest growing careers according to the U.S. Department of Labor. This is mostly among twenty and thirty year olds who were enticed by the job because of the creativity and empathy that is involved. Being a personal trainer is kind of like being someone’s personal buddy system. You grow close with your clients and form a bond as the both of you work together to reach specific goals. Nowadays becoming a personal trainer is much easier. You can actually go online and be certified within a month.
Getting paid for getting fit? Well that is definitely something that I would have no qualms about participating in. It is sad to say, but I think that most Americans or just people in general would rather get paid to do something than to just do it because it is good for them or for someone else. Getting in shape should be a top priority for every human being, but unfortunately for most it is like pulling teeth. Health is an issue in this country and obesity rates are rising by the minute. Being healthy should be on everyone’s mind, yet it is far from most. However, if you were to tell every single individual on this planet that they could actually get paid to work-out; I believe that we would all jump at it in a heartbeat.
Life moves pretty fast and most people are busy, busy, busy twenty-four seven. I know when it comes to me: I work two jobs, full-time college student, in a relationship, and I have family to take care of. When it comes time to find time to take care of myself either physically or mentally, the hours seem to be disappearing at a quick rate. The older I get, the more life becomes all about money and I happen to be doing something. At any given time that does not make me some kind of cash, my time is being wasted. Working out, for one, takes time and patience and in this day and age those are two things that are fading away. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to get in shape and feed my body all the healthy food that it desires, but right now that is just not in the cards.
Honestly, I try to eat as healthy, follow Healthy Diet Program as I can, but a college student’s diet is not the best one. I need quick meals since I am on the go most of the time and I also need meals that can be prepared in a dorm room. Living on campus was one of the best decisions that I have ever made and it has made my social life far more enjoyable than it was in high school. The food at my college, though, is mostly unhealthy and fast, which is a major negative. In the four years that I’ve been there I have managed to keep off the weight surprisingly because of all the walking I am forced to do for classes. My dorm is farthest away from pretty much everything on campus, and I have purposely chosen to live there simply because of this fact. In a way, the food I have to eat is canceled out because of the exercise that I am doing every day.
I think that becoming a personal trainer would be a very rewarding and interesting job for one to have. I have often thought about going that career route myself because not only would it benefit me, but others would benefit from it as well and helping people gives me great joy. Being a personal trainer is a “practice what you preach” kind of job, since you, yourself, are like a walking billboard for health and fitness. Not to mention the money aspect is quite a seller…Tags: money
