Military veterans typically posses the necessary qualities that make for successful personal trainers. Returning servicemen and women often live a healthy lifestyle and are natural motivators. They also relate well to the structure necessary for effectively implementing a fitness program. Veterans understand the benefits of an active lifestyle and are dedicated to helping others or serving for a greater cause.
With about one-third of adults and 17 percent of all children in the U.S. considered obese, America has become an extremely inactive society. Therefore, personal trainers are in high demand, in order to fight the war on obesity. Who better to be on the front lines than our former servicemen and women?
The Post-9/11 GI-Bill provides financial support for educational and housing expenses to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI-Bill. If you are a spouse or child of a service member, you may be eligible for a transfer of the service members’ Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to you.
