Sport and recreation
Do you love to stay in good health or thrive working outdoors? If you want to be your very best and help others do the same, a career in sport and recreation is for you.
Fitness in Australia is a major growth industry. The sports industry is now worth over $1.66 billion. There are over 37,500 sports officials alone in Australia, and the demand for personal training, massage therapy and outdoor recreation guides is strong.
Whether you're interested in coaching, training, aquatics, outdoor pursuits, massage therapy, or sports management there are jobs at all levels of sport. Your qualification will also give you the opportunity to work all across Australia.
Your clients will put their health in your hands as you help them become fitter, faster, healthier and better people. You could work with individuals or teams, media and sponsors, travel far and wide and spend little or no time sitting behind a desk.
Sport and recreation professionals have a wide range of salaries. Personal trainers can charge over $100 an hour and when you run your own business you can set your own hours.
