Career Prospects for Functional Trainers

Functional trainers work at gyms, health clubs, fitness centers, spas, recreation centers, and resorts both indoors and outdoors. Starting one's own business and training clients one-on-one in the office, at home, or at a client's home is another career path. There are a number of alternative career options to choose from as well like working as a fitness blogger, writer, author, or YouTuber. Individualized and targeted sessions produce the maximum results for the clients, but you can also offer boot-camp style functional training to groups of clients.

According to Glassdoor, the national average salary of functional trainers is $45,876 per year or $22.06 per hour (based on a 40-hour work week) in the United States. The fitness training industry continues to go strong. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the employment of fitness trainers and instructors will grow 39 percent through 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations.
