Let me share an excerpt from one of the books I have written for the site
- How to Get Started As a Fitness Instructor.
As with all skilled professionals, an excellent fitness instructor makes
leading classes look both easy and fun. Coupled with this observation,
the idea of being paid to keep fit is appealing to many who already work
out. To become an effective fitness instructor takes much more, however,
than being fit and moving around to music.
Even though this career can offer one of the most flexible and rewarding
of "dream jobs," it still demands many hours of training, practice,
and keeping up with the ever-changing world of fitness. It takes discipline,
personality, communication skills, and, above all, the desire to help
others achieve their goals. Fortunately, if you are willing to devote
your energy and time to this lively career, there are a plethora of opportunities.
The fitness industry is "hot." Health clubs add new classes
on a regular basis. New members join clubs daily. Corporations are realizing
the benefits of creating fitness facilities for their employees. Senior
centers, assisted living complexes, and nursing homes offer fitness sessions.
Committed fitness instructors are needed and in demand.
How to Get Started as a Fitness Instructor will provide a realistic
picture of what you can expect, share the experiences of currently successful
fitness instructors, tell you what you need to know, offer insider tips
on how to become successful, and provide a step-by-step plan to get you
Here is an excerpt from another "dream job" title, Voice-Over
Announcing by Scott Cimarusti.
Everyday we are exposed to some aspect of the broadcasting/voice-over
industry. It can range from routinely tuning in to our favorite radio
station in the car during our trip to the store, or listening to the background
on-hold message when calling a local business. Because of advances in
technology and an increasing focus on all forms of media, there will continue
to be an increasing need for talented voice announcers.
Despite having so many different applications, voice-over/announcing jobs
seem to remain an eclectic and elusive career for many aspiring announcers.
As with many other pursuits, the first question is, "Where do I even
There is no "secret" to it, necessarily. Just commitment, perseverance,
and knowing where the potential opportunities are. How to Get Started
in Voice-Over & Radio Announcing will provide some general guidelines
to follow when pursuing this career path, including insight into some
hidden prospects. You'll also get some tips and ideas from people who
have made careers in this industry in various capacities. Though this
information will not necessarily guarantee you fame and fortune, you will
get a practical foundation upon which you can begin building a career
as a radio and/or voice-over announcer.
