Leroy’s Answer

A lot of professions started as being male dominated at one point in time, I wouldn't let that deter you if that's something you're really interested in. You would bring a different perspective, and approach to the training.

There is but it isn't substantially more. 45% females to 55% males.

Katie’s Answer

Don't underestimate how your unique skills and experiences may help you in the field, sometimes especially because it's dominated by one gender. I am heading out on parental leave in a few weeks, and I've actually been looking for a trainer who is a woman that I can work with when I'm back. I'm sure a man would be understanding about the types of strain being pregnant can put on a body, but a woman will understand it more deeply. So even if there are slightly more men in the field, you have something valuable to offer too!
