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:

Recreational Therapist

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 Therapist

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.

Fitness Model

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.

Fitness Influencer

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.

  1. I don’t suppose you could find out about family-like communities in Europe that will accept US citizens as permanent residents, where the members live together, eat together, work together, like family, like say, in a convent or in a commune, but without the religious part? (I’ve been looking for this: essentially a secular convent, for years with no luck…)

    1. No, unfortunately my specialisation doesn’t lie in this area. I believe such communities (if exist in the locale you want to live in) will be through word-of-mouth with the locals, rather than found on Google. I wish you luck in finding that!

      1. “Retirement does not mean that you stay in bed all day and watch television all day.” WHAT!? I thought THAT was what retirement was all about! :-))))
        Not really, I am keeping busy with some small repair and install jobs (used to build houses) and I edit my bride’s paper and exams. Oh, and I slooowly blog. 😉

          1. Too expensive tools to sell at a garage sale discount. Would rather give them to some younger friends up and coming in the design/building trades or to church operations who could use them.
            But Marie Kondo? Definitely NEED her advice on how to begin! Over 20 years of construction materials and tools!! :-O
            I’ll be certain to blog on it once it happens. 😉

          2. Oh wow! That will be some collection! I think you can loan them out to those who needs it but can’t afford to purchase it. You can charge a small rental fee with a refundable deposit if they return the tool in good shape.


  3. I have been on fitness lately due to what lockdown has presented to me. Though it has not been easy but have managed to keep up to it. I like the post
