Where Can Personal Trainers Work?
If you’re considering a career in fitness, ISTA can help. Here are the some of the best gyms for personal trainers to work at, and who knows — the best place to work out in the United States may be right in your backyard.
Visitors to Colorado’s Red Rocks recognize the world-famous venue as the only naturally occurring amphitheater on Earth. It’s also one of the coolest gyms that personal trainers can work at from April to July. You can take in the gorgeous surroundings as you teach a 7 a.m. yoga class during the summer months, or sign up for the Red Rocks Fitness Challenge, a 12-week program that provides fitness and nutrition coaching plus 5 workouts a week.
E at Equinox
Big-city fitness aficionados recognize Equinox as one of the premier luxury gyms in the metro region. Although members can spend a few thousand dollars a year to join this tony facility, only the truly elite will be invited to join E at Equinox. This invitation-only, ultra-exclusive membership costs $25,000 a year to join, but members receive an unparalleled level of personal attention, spa services and more.
Personal trainers know that heart rate is the key to measuring a great workout. Trainers at Orangetheory Fitness give heart rate monitors to clients, who can watch their performance on a screen as they exercise. Classes rotate between strength and cardio activities and use a wide range of equipment. If you’re a fan of mixing it up with your clients, Orangetheory is the gym for you.
More research is demonstrating that walking-based activities such as hiking lead to impressive gains in health and longevity with reduced risk of injury — and no fear of learning complex routines. Hiking Yoga combines scenic hiking with the strength and peace-of-mind benefits of yoga. Perfect for trainers and clients who love to spend time outdoors, Hiking Yoga is a fitness experience unlike any other.
Have you checked out your neighborhood YMCA lately? These family-friendly facilities are affordable, feature a wide variety of classes and equipment, sponsor youth athletic teams and more. Best of all, there is probably a YMCA somewhere near you.
Ultimately, a licensed trainer can work anywhere there are people. For more information on becoming a personal trainer, contact ISTA today.
