Since 2010, the average salary for part-time personal trainers has increased by 12 percent, while annual salaries for full-time health and fitness professionals and part-time group fitness instructors have held steady, according to a new Salary Report released by the American Council on Exercise.

Based on a 2013 survey of more than 3,000 ACE Personal Trainers, Group Fitness Instructors, Health Coaches, and Advanced Health and Fitness Specialists worldwide, the data revealed that part-time health and fitness professionals reported significantly higher salaries, while those with advanced certifications receive more benefits.

  • Respondents in the Southeast and Southwest saw the greatest overall increase since 2010, while those in the Northeast saw an overall decrease in salaries.
  • Boot camps and dance fitness classes saw a jump in popularity in 2013.
  • Nearly seven out of 10 personal trainers work with overweight or obese adults.
  • More than half (52 percent) of professionals with an advanced certification report that it allows them to earn more.
