I absolutely love interactions from my readers. So I try to fulfill your requests from time to time. Simon, a talented writer himself inspired me to research and write a list of jobs for fitness lovers like himself.
When you think about fitness careers, many of us will immediately think the only career you would be a gym instructor. However, there’s much more to the fitness industry that meets the eye and careers that will help you pursue your love for fitness and health.
To get you started, here are 10 of the best fitness jobs you may want to consider:
As a recreational therapist, you are the one in charge of helping patients who are disabled, sick or injured by providing them with physical therapy exercises to regain their physical strength. Some of these patients may have been involved in accidents, which rendered them unable to move their body properly.
Exercise is just one part of staying healthy. You also need to have a well-thought out diet that will keep your body strong and dietitians can help you with that. They can help you pick the right diet that will match your body type and health goals, as well as guide you in keeping up with your chosen diet.
Coaches play a big impact in a team. They are the ones who push the team to do their best and also teach them the right skills to stay fit and be able to do the right techniques for them to succeed in the sport.
Massage therapists aren’t just there to help people to feel well, they can help injured people to get treated correctly. With their help, these therapists will provide therapy that will target affected muscle tissues and help the patient feel less pain from their injuries, helping them get better faster and get back to their work.
Fitness Tech Engineer
If you have a background in biomechanics or engineering, you may want to consider becoming a fitness tech engineer. As a fitness tech engineer, you will be in charge of finding solutions to issues like sore muscles after using gym equipment and troublesome fitness equipment. They also introduce new products that can improve fitness.
Professor of Kinesiology
Another interesting fitness job you may consider is being a professor of kinesiology. In this field, you will teach students about the physics behind movement and study various aspects such as sports and exercise.
As a fitness model, you will be the face of fitness. You can work with talent agencies who can link you up to fitness modeling jobs where you will showcase your fit body and products that can help people stay fit.
Fitness Magazine Editor-in-chief
If you have a talent for writing, you may want to consider working for a fitness magazine. You can share your love for fitness by writing fitness-related articles for a magazine and rise up the ranks with your hard work and be the magazine’s editor-in-chief. It may take a while, but you can use your position to help raise awareness and updates about fitness.
With everyone stuck at home, it is easy to put on extra weight. Fitness Influencers inspire followers who wants to keep fit. They do it via vlogging and blogging. You can stand out by finding your own niche in the fitness genre. Maybe design a simple routine that even toddlers can follow? Or a extreme 30 mins routine that burns up lots of calories?
Scuba Diving Instructor
Okay, this is not in the gym but I couldn’t help it since this is my latest hobby. Imagine the sea as your playground or workplace! Unless we all moved to live on the beach, I don’t think this career path is for me because I can’t always be away to teach. However, if you love the beach and sea, you love teaching and meeting new people, this is a satisfying career. In fact, you can get all your qualifications sponsored and be able to start teaching within a year if you choose to attach to dive centres.
The world of fitness is very diverse and there’s a lot more you can do in the field aside from just being a gym trainer. The 10 jobs we listed above are just some of the few careers you can try out for and if you do try them out, make sure to work hard and keep doing your best. As you progress with your chosen career, you will be able to find more about fitness and advocate it more to the people who are still skeptical about it.
