Celebrating Women in Fitness for International Women’s Day

We love celebrating the women in fitness every day, but for International Women’s Day today, we want to shine an extra special light on all the incredible women who work in the fitness industry! 

Historically, fitness has been a very male-dominated industry, but over the past couple of decades, there’s been an increase in the number of women working in fitness-related positions – something we are so excited to play a part in! And this doesn’t just apply to stereotypically female areas like Pilates and Yoga – the number of female personal trainers is higher than ever before! 

A lot is expected of women – balancing a career, a social life, and family responsibilities. Retraining in a new career, whether or not that’s fitness, is just another responsibility to think about. But with a bit of balancing (and let’s be honest, us women are great at multi-tasking!), it’s possible to achieve anything we set our minds to. And the rewards can be incredible – finding a career that aligns with your values, having the ability to design your own work schedule, and finding more joy, which will then have a knock-on effect to the other areas of your life. 

Here are some tips to help you balance your fitness course alongside your other day-to-day activities: 

Use time blocking

When creating your schedule for the week, set certain amounts of time to focus on things like work, studying, social activities, exercise, and relaxing and do your best to stick to it. 

Create boundaries

Try focusing on one activity at a time. When you want to be focusing on your course, do your best not to think about work, check your phone, or anything else that may make it harder to concentrate. 

Prioritise rest

It’s not all about the grind! The time you take to rest and recover, both mentally and physically, is just as important as the time spent working. 

Take time for yourself

Don’t forget to budget some time for your hobbies and fun activities to make sure you don’t burn yourself out.

One of our newest course options, Our Next Gen Gym and PT Qualification, makes it easier than ever for women to pursue their dream of a fitness career. The modules allow extra flexibility and can work around your unique schedule, helping learners invest in their personal development while also balancing other areas of their lives.
