B&WSSC & Talwalkars signs MoU for job opportunities
B&WSSC and Talwalkars entered into a MoU for the placement of B&WSSC-certified candidates across all the Talwalkars fitness centre and academies.
Fitness forms a large sub-sector and Beauty & Wellness Sector Skill Council (B&WSSC) has been focussing on bringing standardisation to the category. Understanding the compelling need for creating standards, the fitness industry has collaborated with the council to achieve this goal. Major players such as Talwalkars, K11, BFY, Classic Fitness, Quest Fitness are part of the B&WSSC governing body. They play a major role in institutionalising the standards created in the fitness domain.
Spending resources on fitness was earlier seen as a luxury, but is now becoming a necessity for people dealing with the stresses of a modern life. The scenario is not only applicable to the metropolitan cities, but also to tier 2 and tier 3 cities, and towns and villages, where people are increasingly opting for wellness and fitness choices. A preventive approach to healthcare has led to an increase in demand for not just services but also products. Today’s health conscious and fitness aware generation aspires to look and feel good at any cost; and this is further fuelling the overall growth of the fitness resources and services.
With the growing industry, the need for skilled personnel is also growing. According to a KPMG report, the workforce requirement in the fitness segment would be 0.11 million by 2022.
Presently, B&WSSC has 10 job roles under the Fitness sub-sector:
- Gym Assistant
- Personal Trainer
- Group Fitness Trainer
- Membership Consultant
- Group Training Manager
- Personal Training Manager
- Fitness Manager
- Fitness Services Trainer

The council has also shown career progression for fitness job roles to help the individuals choosing Fitness as a career option trace their career path.
In keeping with the core motive to facilitate and open employment doors for the trained and certified candidates in fitness domain, B&WSSC and Talwalkars entered into a MoU for the placement of B&WSSC-certified candidates across all the Talwalkars fitness centre and academies.
