If you could pick a different career other than personal training, which would you pick?
Advice
The interviewer may be interested in how you chose personal training. You may have considered physical therapy or nutrition. You might have considered a different field entirely. The interviewer wants to get to know you and your interests. If you have plans to work towards another career, share how this role will help you get there. You want to show that you are invested, even if this is something you plan to do for a short time. "I use to want to be a yoga teacher, but when I started learning more about the benefits of cardio and weight training, I decided to pursue my career in personal training. I think I will still get my yoga training to use with my clients, but I want to continue to focus on growing my client base as a trainer."
