Do you love to exercise? Are you a group fitness junkie? Do you find yourself giving fitness advice to your friends and family?
Have you ever considered changing careers to work in the fitness industry?
Like many of us who work full time as personal trainers and group fitness instructors Artemis Scantalides started her career working in an office. To hear why she gave up a lucrative career as a consultant to work late nights and early mornings making half naked people sweaty be sure to catch episode 12 of All About Fitness where we discuss her transition from fitness enthusiast to fitness studio owner, trainer and international speaker. In addition Artemis is one of only a few women who have earned the prestigious Iron Maiden designation so we also talk about weight lifting and strength training.
It IS possible to earn a living while working in your favorite fitness clothes; in this age of social media and online content your income potential as a fitness professional is limited only by how hard you're willing to work and how creative you can be at developing a niche audience for what you have to offer.
