If you agree to most of the points above, then fitness is a career for you.
But there is a very long way to go. Being a fitness professional is one of the toughest career choices out there, and I mean every word of what I am saying. It is not to overhype or give a unnecessary importance to a career I personally am in. But it is to give you a true picture of what is instore for you, in this field.
With an experience of over two decades, and being the only professional in this field in India, with a background of competitive athletics, hardcore military training, and competitive bodybuilding, along with tons of other sports; all this combined with one of the richest academic experiences which includes independent research, writing hundreds of articles for various online and offline media platforms, authoring close to a hundred ebooks (more than anyone in the country), lecturing around the country, and consulting & coaching thousands of clients from all walks of life, in various parts of the world; I can say one thing for sure, YOU HAVE TO BE READY TO SHED SWEAT & BLOOD, IF YOU WANT TO ENTER THE FIELD OF FITNESS, & MAKE IT BIG. Or else, forget it.
If you think, this is discouraging, then your career is already over.
