Fitness Freak? Find Out How You Can Make Money From Your Passion!

For many of us stressed workers, exercising is the best way to unwind, not to mention staying healthy and vital. Some days, it’s the one thing we look forward to all day long, and the only time-slot we dedicate to having a little bit of fun. If you are one of the lucky people who know just how fun exercising is, you should consider starting your own business in the fitness market. If you’re tired of sitting motionless staring at your computer screen, these fitness business opportunities are worth checking out. We’ve sifted through and selected only the coolest fitness trends you can pick up and implement for your new start-up idea.

Powerlifting Gym

With a powerlifting gym, you’re targeting people who want ‘more’. You’ve circled down your target audience to select people who are probably very dedicated to their workout regime and are willing to spend on what they love. The good thing with this idea is you not required to obtain professional fitness qualification prior to establishing your gym. However, you should consider getting accreditation from professional bodies like The American Council on Exercise, which will probably help increase the credibility of your gym, especially if you’ll need a loan to start your business. Obviously, establishing a powerlifting gym isn’t for everybody, and it’s not just something you’d wake up one morning and do. You would be required to apply for different licenses and permits, and will also need extensive insurance coverage due to the risky nature of exercises which your gym patrons will be partaking in. Depending on your state, you may be asked for other precautionary measures, like in the state of California, a written emergency plan which was developed by physicians, staff trained in AED & CPR, and automated external defibrillators are expected to be available. This option is more suited to heavy weight lifters who can harness their passion to found a perfect playground for themselves and their peers.

Establish a Wellness Blog

As a fitness enthusiast, if you’re also passionate about writing and have some time on your hands, you can decide to establish a wellness blog. Here you can share your expertise on all things related to fitness and wellness including nutrition, exercising and much more. Several models of income generation are available for fitness bloggers. There are PPC advertisements like Google AdSense you can place on your blog to generate passive income, especially if you have started gathering a following and readership. Before starting a fitness blog, you should do some research to see what successful blogs in your niche are doing right. Find out the kind of topics which are bringing the most readership, and how their websites/blog are structured. You should also look at what’s missing from their content, which can make you stand out. You’re trying to attract readers akin to their’s, so you have to focus on what they’d love to know and deliver accordingly. The most important thing in creating your own blog is consistency. It might take a while for your blog to really pick up, so stay the course and don’t be discouraged too quickly!

Become a Physical Therapist

The usefulness of physical therapists cannot be overstated especially in sporting activities like athletics. Not only does this profession present an amazing opportunity to help people and promote health, but it is also very lucrative, so it’s a business idea you should definitely consider. If you want to become a physical therapist, you should be ready to put in the work as it involves getting some education. Being able to treat people in a responsible and effective way requires knowledge, so you will be expected to have at least a Bachelor’s Degree in any health-related field to even apply. Once that’s done, you’d be required to complete several Doctor of Physical Therapy degree programs which can run into years. Upon successful completion of those hurdles, you’d have to face the regulatory challenges. Different states have different licensing requirements, so familiarize yourself with those of the state where you plan to practice.

Start A Running Club

Another business worth considering is setting up a running or walking club if you’re an active, enthusiastic runner/walker. It would help you take your passion for running a notch higher. Starting such a club isn’t as demanding as the rest of the listed businesses as you don’t need any qualification to get started. However, keep in mind that if you would migrate your startup from just a ‘club’ to a business, you should consider legally incorporating it. You can make your new club an affiliate of revered clubs like the Road Runners Club of America to enjoy affordable insurance which covers general liability like your races, meeting, and activities. Deciding to make a business out of your passion may be a bit daunting. However, it’s a great way to day to day routine more fulfilling, and might be worth the effort!
