CARVE OUT YOUR OWN NICHE
"When I left active duty, finding a job/career was a nightmare. 11 years in the USMC, exemplary record, good civilian education creditials--didn’t matter. In the course of literally hundreds of applications/interviews, I was told in a round about way by many employers, ‘so you led a Platoon of Marines in combat and you traveled all over the world in leadership positions-so what?' I know what it's like to be a veteran looking for a career niche in a world that doesn’t appreciate our credentials. So, in the absence of any other direction, I carved out my own niche in the fitness industry and I'm thankful I did."
-USMC Major Tommy Dunaway
With a recent rise in salary rates for fitness professionals, many veterans are finding opportunities to make twice the salary of what they could make in other career fields (i.e. $53,000 on average).
In fact, Fitness Trainers who develop their business and sales skills commonly move on to become Fitness Managers and Gym Owners who will often make 2- 3 times this amount earning incomes from $100,000 - $150,000.
