What do corporate fitness trainers do?
Corporate fitness trainers and instructors typically:

Practicum
Every corporate fitness major is required to apply his or her classroom knowledge to a real world setting by completing a practicum (internship). Employers or students may initiate the practicum. Occasionally practicum experiences lead to offers of employment.

Career outlook
As businesses and insurance organizations continue to recognize the benefits of employee health and fitness programs, employment for corporate fitness trainers is expected to grow faster than average through 2020.

Is corporate fitness right for you?
Successful corporate fitness trainers are good listeners, able to keep clients motivated, are physically fit, have excellent speaking skills, and can evaluate clients' needs and skill levels and create appropriate fitness plans for them.

Facilities
Completed in 2012, the Minot State University Wellness Center features a rock climbing wall, cardio exercise equipment, weight rooms and exercise studios where classes are offered in everything from yoga to kickboxing.
