Jan. 28, 2011 - PRLog -- With employment opportunities for personal trainers expected to grow 29% through 2018 – much faster than average, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics – the health and fitness industry will become a focus for those looking for a new career or second income source. To best prepare individuals to enter and succeed in the health and fitness industry, Hondros College developed their new personal training certification course in partnership with renowned fitness professionals. This new course is both progressive and comprehensive, providing students with the most relevant information available as they learn how to become effective personal trainers and build a career in the fast-growing health and fitness industry.
