Personal Trainers gain experience working with Footballers

Tuesday Jul 9, 2019

 Why Working with Young Footballers is Great Experience for a Personal Trainer.

 Have you made the decision that staying fit and healthy isn't just something you enjoy doing for yourself, but is something you want to make a career out of? Do you want to be able to help others achieve their own health and fitness goals by offering advice, information, instruction, and motivation? If so, then the career of a personal trainer would probably be ideal. You’ll be working one-on-one with those who are counting on you to help them get in better shape, help to build their confidence, and really lead them through a transformation.

 As a personal trainer, you can start your own business or work at a fitness centre, you may be able to set your own hours which offers flexibility, and you’ll be able to take your passion and interest and turn it into a career. The personal trainer hourly rate in the UK will vary depending on how much training you have, but in general, if you are an independent trainer, then you are pretty much able to set your own price.

 Going through the proper training courses so you can be qualified is a must, but there are some other things that can help your career to take off. One route is to work with young footballers in order to gain experience. Here we’ll take a closer look at how that can help you on your career path.

 You Will Be Working with Elite Athletes

 One of the first benefits is the fact you’ll get to work with top-notch elite athletes who are really pushing their bodies to their limits. These aren’t people who just want to lose a few pounds or get fit; these are athletes that need to build their endurance, strength, flexibility, and balance and push to be the best of the best.
 As a personal trainer, it will allow you to put all your skills and knowledge into play, and challenge you in a way the typical everyday client just won’t. 

 It Looks Great on Your CV

 After working with athletes, this is something that can really beef up your CV. Whether you are an independent trainer looking to get more clients, or you’re hoping to get a full-time job at a gym or fitness centre, showing that you’ve got experience with hard-core athletes will bode well for you.

 An Excellent Networking Opportunity

 Then, just like with any job experience, there is also the fact you will have a networking opportunity. Once you start working with athletes, you never know the connections you’ll make and where they can lead. Even though the young footballers are just amateur athletes, it could help you forge a path wherein you’ll be working with professional athletes in the future. Think of it as an excellent job growth opportunity.

 Plenty to Be Gained by the Experience

 These are just some of the stand-out reasons it can be well worth your time and effort to work with young footballers. Keep in mind that there is more than just the current state of your career; you will be working to solidify your future and perhaps build some new and important contacts.
