I forever will Love to teach Group Fitness Classes, this is such a big part of me, that in the past I did too much of it and had to give up some because of my body saying "NEED BREAK". It is so important to me to show my students that Fitness Can Be Fun and sometimes it may not be easy, but it can be a place to come and release Stress, feel motivated and leave knowing you are not the same as when you came in to class. Most Instructors teach an average of 5-10 classes a week. Also as Trainers, we tend to have to work the Peak times of the day like: Morning, Evening and Weekends. Now we can see why it can be a Struggle for many to Build enough INCOME in the Fitness Industry.
