The Fitness Industry is a dynamic and evolving industry. The fitness industry contributes to the economy by providing benefits to consumers through increased health, which may decrease demand for other health related services and free up Government revenue for other purposes. Fitness instructors are at the entry level of a career within the Fitness industry. According to the recent Australian Fitness Industry Report 2012, trends within the industry show that aerobics, fitness or gym workouts are now the second most popular physical recreation activity after walking, amongst Australians. The fitness industry has more participants than swimming and cycling (the next biggest) combined and is continuing to grow. It also plays a supportive and preventative health role with sport specific programs, rehabilitation programs and mainstream fitness and health programs.
