Diversify Your Income With Alternative Jobs For The Health Professional

by Sarah Koszyk, MA, RD

Many fitness professionals, such as personal trainers, only get paid when the clients show up. If a personal trainer wants to take a vacation, there can be the possibility that no income will come in during the time away from the gym. Finding alternative ways for revenue is important in assisting with building one’s business and increasing the bottom line.

Here is a list of alternative jobs for the fitness professional:

  • Representative/sales associate for equipment
  • Affiliate marketer for a specific product line ranging from supplements, food/nutrition products, workout products, and more
  • Author of E-books
  • Newsletter developer/writer
  • Workout videos
  • Online video training
  • Online blogging
  • Online coaching
  • Wellness coach
  • Lifestyle and weight management consultant
  • Social media writer for companies/corporations
  • Speaker/Public educator
  • Infomercials for product sales
  • Referral programs with fellow trainers and business associates where you get paid for every referral you make
  • Boot camp coordinator/developer
  • Corporate wellness program developer
  • Workshops & seminars
  • Group fitness instructor for aerobics, kickboxing, strength training, yoga, pilates, aquatic training, and more
