Aren’t we all just trying to survive? Aren’t we all making ends meet? Shouldn’t we look for side hustles aside from our 9-to-5 jobs? Isn’t it more practical to earn while we’re doing something we love? If you’re into health and fitness, you can make a profit from that. Never has been fit become such a hit in a generation that it is now. Millennials are taking fitness to a whole new level with their diet fads, cycling programs, gym memberships, and yoga classes. Why not take advantage of that?
You can enroll in a health coach training program. This will set you up on the basics of eating healthy and getting fit. It’s a good start to becoming a fitness guru for these millennials and their consumption power.
Remember that even the Baby Boomer generation is into getting fit these days. You see them jogging down the hillside. You see them in the gym. You see them taking yoga classes. These are all true for millennials, too. This is a golden opportunity to capture some of that purchasing power these two generations have.
Check the Local Community Center
Your community center might be looking for a yoga instructor, fitness guru, or a dance instructor. It’s a great place to find new opportunities for a side hustle. It will work for your schedule, too. Most of these programs will be geared toward after-school youth. You’re going to get paid and help the youth stay out of trouble. It’s a great deal. You’ll also discover that community centers are the hub for people from all walks of life. You’ll find first-time moms taking yoga classes there. There are also senior adults trying out a dance class.
Start a Neighborhood Fitness Group
There are plenty of people in your neighborhood who might need help getting fit. In fact, they may want to learn from you, only they’re embarrassed to ask for help. Why don’t you start a neighborhood fitness group? You can begin by inviting everyone over for a morning jog. Then those who will sign up will get a fitness program from you—complete with dietary restrictions (depending on their medical conditions) and daily exercise routines. You don’t have to charge a huge fee, but it’s a good start to get your “business” off the ground.
Become a Personal Trainer
Set up a Facebook account and start answering inquiries from people. A lot of them want the personal experience of having a trainer. They believe that this will solve their weight and health problems. Be their friend. Answer questions willingly. Share your knowledge about what you believe are the best programs for them. As you build your clientele, ask them to recommend you to their friends. And who knows? This side hustle may become so profitable that you won’t need your corporate job anymore.
Write Fitness Content
Try your hand out in publishing fitness articles. If you’re a good writer, you may get a huge following by writing content for a magazine or a newspaper. You can start a fitness blog, too. A lot of people are researching tips for getting fit and healthy. This is your chance to share your knowledge and market your skills. Soon, companies will be knocking on your door to place ads on your website.
You can turn your passion for getting fit into a profitable side hustle. Instead of paying gym memberships every month, you can cover this cost by turning your passion into a profitable business. With time and commitment, you’ll find yourself doing something you love and earning from it.
