As the baby boomer population begins to age, a greater emphasis is placed on keeping older adults healthy. This can create a greater demand for personal trainers, who can help direct and facilitate physical activities for those concerned about their physical health. In fact, the BLS predicts that personal trainer employment will increase 29 percent in the 2008 to 2018 decade.
