Fancy an energetic career change? Fitness chain seeks instructors aged over 55.
In a valiant attempt to encourage more older people into its gyms, David Lloyd Leisure has announced a recruitment drive for suitably mature fitness trainers. It has committed to having a Fitness Trainer aged 55 or over in every one of its clubs by the end of 2022 and also introducing individual training programmes to meet the specific needs of the older age-group.
In addition to being a smart PR move, this commitment follows the publication of research by Public Health England and ukactive suggesting that older people feel more self-conscious when exercising in public and workout less often than other age groups.
