I also have a diploma in Fitness And Training From Ziauddin. Im one of the few ACE (American Council On Exercise) Certified Personal Trainer in karachi.

The problem is that most gyms in karachi are local gyms,they prefer desi trainers who are on steroids mostly,and i dont want to use steroids ever, they dont care about educational background of the trainer. and hi fi gyms of karachi which are : Shapes and other gyms, they are not hiring anyone,i have applied in every top gym of pakistan but no luck, Altough shapes called me for a interview last year,at that time i was only local certified trainer from ziauddin,and they failed me because i was wearing sandals on jeans,i wanted to wear shoes but the shoes i had were in bad condition so i wore sandals,and no i couldn't buy new shoes because i didn't had any money and my father is retired, so i mostly spend my own money to buy anything.

anyways, can anyone help me find a good job with good salary package ? if you need my CV then i can send you, i also have 1 year of experience working as a trainer in 3 different gyms. and im going to start a new certification in "Fitness Nutritionist Specialist" From ACE in november,just waiting for black friday so i can buy that course in cheap price. i was trying to find a job in ramada hotel and marriot and many other, etc. but still no luck. im pretty sure that in ramada hotel "Pawwa" works, because there is a desi trainer who used to work there,and trust me that guy doesn't even know anything related to fitness except lifting heavy weights . anyways, If anyone can help me with this it will be very kind of you. Btw im trying to find a job in any big hotel like ramada , marriot, move n pick.etc, because they give really good salary packages.

Stop looking for a job, you want to work under people who are inferior to you? Go get a Camera, some weight & start giving fitness advice on Social media like Instagram, Youtube & Facebook. Be an independent trainer, If you are hard-working & have competency in your field. You can get plenty of private client training under your leadership. You can start your own gym or a chain of the gym at a later part of your life.

Start now with what you have or you might feel disgusted by not starting it earlier. The job market is so volatile. It's better to have your own business and multiple income streams to secure your finances.

How about being an Influencer? Do you think that market can grow in the social platforms? But, maybe it will take too long since you need to have many followers and fans.

This is THE-In thing nowadays. Fitness, Yoga, Zumba and other stuff are being done through socmed platforms. You can either have it recorded or have it live.

Treat your situation as a blessing and opportunity. That way you will have a more positive perspective on how its gonna be.

Indeed, this is right. This works perfectly fine to most. Being a positive thinker comes great opportunities.

I've also encountered other fitness enthusiasts creating a FB page and eventually selling that page once there are already lots of followers. You might want to check that.
