Do You Know How Much a Fitness Instructor Can Earn?
If you have read our other articles on developing a career as a fitness instructor, you will undoubtedly have realised there can be a big difference in the earnings that are possible. Here we’ll take a closer look at what you can expect to earn if you go into this profession in South Africa.
What can you earn if you have just one year of experience?
According to a report given by an online website specialising in earnings for various professions, a South African fitness instructor can expect to earn a median of around R46,500 after the first year.
However this depends on a number of factors. For example personal trainers are included in this figure. Drilling down into the results shows us that a fitness instructor earns around R36,000 after the first year, whereas a fitness trainer can earn a lot more than this. One example gave a salary of R60,000.
Does your salary depend on where in South Africa you work?
It can do, although this does not seem to be as big a factor as some other aspects of the job are.
Can you expect the pay to increase when you get more experience and more years in your job?
Yes you can. When we entered five years experience to get a new report as indicated above, we had some very interesting results. The median amount was still around the same figure – R46,500. However the top and bottom earnings were very different indeed.
One of the lowest earners was an aerobics instructor who was earning R1,500 a month – the equivalent of R18,000 a year. This person was working for a fitness club. In contrast, a fitness trainer working on a contract agreement was bringing in a much higher amount of R8,000 a month – an impressive R96,000 a year.
Elsewhere a fitness instructor specialising in strength training was earning R4,900 a month – R58,800 a year. This was for a gym that was privately owned, indicating that privately owned gyms and fitness centres typically pay more than those outlets owned as part of a franchise.
Most interesting of all is the disparity between the lowest and highest earning fitness instructors in South Africa today. This is especially true since none of the information on the site pointed to people who were independent contractors. These are likely to earn even more than those who are employed.
It also shows that some areas, such as aerobics, do not typically pay as much as other areas, such as personal trainers. Indeed fitness instructors who decide to go down the personal trainer route and opt for one-on-one teaching tend to earn much more for their efforts.
So you can see there is a lot to take in here. The more you understand and the more you find out about the amount you can earn as a qualified fitness instructor, the more you will realise that you can go on to earn a good income.
