Careers in Fitness that Pay Well

I am all about living your life to the fullest and following your passion when it comes to a career. Show me a very happy person, and I can bet the person has a great career. Life and work go hand in hand, and that is why I always write about freelance/self-employed topics and share my freelance experience, because I truly love what I do, so I can’t help myself. I also write about them so often because I hope they would inspire someone out there to pursue their dreams and not give up without a fight.

There are so many careers that interest a wide range of people and pay well, but today, I am going to focus on Careers in Fitness that pay well because the fitness industry is currently booming.

A Personal Trainer

A personal trainer is one of the most popular career choices in the health and fitness industry, and I am not surprised. Personal trainers are in demand now more than ever. Back in the day, only the rich and famous could afford the luxury of having a personal trainer, but that is no longer the case. We the common people can now afford a personal trainer if needed because there are various affordable packages now available privately and in gyms.

A personal trainer has the ability to earn up to £60,000 a year, thanks to the current demand. I guess that explains why many people are now interested in studying Personal Trainer Courses. The potential financial rewards, the easiness of self-employment and the job satisfaction that can be had, make it a popular career choice.

Aerobatic Instructors

An aerobics instructor, also known as an exercise to music instructor, delivers group exercise classes that are performed to music. This career choice is an excellent starting point in the fitness industry, with the pay range being between £25 and £50 per hour, depending on experience, establishments they teach in and how many participants are in their classes or what time of day the classes are.



According to the National Careers Service, a Nutritionist use the scientific knowledge of food to give information and advice about the effects of diet and nutrition on health and wellbeing. They usually hand in hand with the fitness trainer, in the fitness industry.  A Nutritionist has the ability to earn up to £50,000 a year.


Have you ever thought of any of these careers or other careers in fitness? Have you ever employed a Personal Trainer, Aerobatic Instructor or a Nutritionist?

  2. There are some excellent careers in fitness that pay marvelously. I know that you can do all kinds of things. I worry about nutritionists though. I wish they did more study into all different kinds of human issues before proclaiming what we should and should not eat or what works or doesn’t work as far as diet and health.

  3. I never thought about this before but I totally agree. These career choices allows you to earn well especially these days. People are more into switching to a healthier lifestyle.

  4. I’ve suddenly met lots of nutritionists over the last six months. Maybe life is trying to tell me something, lol.

  5. Love your attitude to careers and work, you are absolutely right that people who love their job tend to be pretty happy people. Sounds like there is a bright future in the fitness industry. I don’t think I could ever do a fitness job but I’m grateful for the people who do those jobs who help me get a little bit fitter!

  6. I agree with you, the fitness industry is definitely booming right now, You can see it everywhere, I have been getting more into fitness lately. Wouldn’t say I would go for a career in fitness since I am really a novice, but I love the idea of eating healthy, keeping active and just getting your health on track. These are some very good tips, thanks for sharing!

  7. My partner has his first session with a personal trainer tomorrow! The fitness industry is popular at the moment but I’m fit enough running around after the kids!

  8. Interesting post…I studied Sport Science at Loughborough and Nutrition at Uni of Liverpool, came out with a first & an Msc and couldn’t get a job…was very depressed for a while. Then retrained to get into digital marketing, which has worked out pretty well. I try not to be cynical or bitter, but sometimes I do think there’s no entry-to-market in fitness…anyone can claim to be a ‘nutritionist’ for example and a course on Groupon can qualify you as a PT Nice post tho! sorry for negativity
