The Personal Trainers industry has experienced steady growth over the five years to 2017, fueled by rising demand for weight-loss services and greater interest in customized workout regimes. Additionally, specialized group classes, which are typically offered at a lower price per person than individual sessions, have remained a steady source of income for trainers; these group sessions are typically more lucrative for personal trainers. Rising disposable income over the next five years will enable a greater share of consumers to spend on higher-priced personal training sessions. Moreover, the percentage of Americans who are overweight or obese is expected to increase over the five years to 2022, fostering greater demand for industry services.
This industry includes individuals who offer one-on-one and small-group fitness training. Personal trainers may also provide personalized diet programs. Personal trainers are typically employed by gyms, fitness studios and hospitals, or they are self-employed. Large-group instructors and professional athletic trainers are not included as part of this industry.
