If you are planning to be in the fitness industry but don’t have slightest of idea about how you will get paid then it can get a bit confusing to actually make a final decision. Fitness industry is worth £9 billion as per reports surfaced in 2017 and provides huge opportunities for anyone looking to make a career in this industry. Renowned bodybuilders, personal trainers, nutritionists etc. are no less than superstars in this glamorous industry. But like every industry the competition is very steep and to make a place for yourself you have to show your potential.
There is no fixed salary structure in fitness industry and varies a lot from country to country. The pay grade is not universal and depends upon various factors. In UK the full time average salary is £27,600 but if you will look at the average wage of a fitness instructor it is £14,884 and the average wage of a level three personal trainer is £19,417 so being in UK a fitness aspirant might think that the monetary loss is almost 40% when compared to the full time average salary. But it doesn’t mean that you will be underpaid because as per Payscale data though the average personal training salary is low in comparison to the average full time salary but once you start your career you might end up earning in six figures.
