Health & Fitness Overview

What’s it like working in the Health and Fitness industry? It’s exciting: it’s varied: it’s rewarding.

The industry is one of the few sectors to have seen continuous growth in both employment and wealth over recent years, and stands proudly in the spotlight. There has never been a better time to forge a career in this active arena.

Illnesses such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease, are increasingly common, and are tied to unhealthy lifestyles. Government initiatives and health agendas are set on reducing the number of cases of people living with these conditions. With this support and investment, the industry’s growth shows no sign of slowing down.

Alongside this developing awareness, people want to look and feel good about themselves; it’s all about having a healthy lifestyle. And in parallel, is the growing need for qualified and experienced professionals. Now’s the time to kick start your career in Health and Fitness, and develop your knowledge and skills.
