Jobs in the Health & Fitness Industry

Ay does anyone know the highest paying jobs or pretty decent jobs in the health and fitness industry?? I wonder how much money Thib or Waterbury are making or someone like Joe DeFranco.

Those people are at the top of their game. Not saying you can’t get there some day, but I take it the salary range is like what I once saw when I looked into becoming a pastry chef. You’re either a starving artist or sitting pretty.

I could be wrong, though.

Like mentioned there’s a wide range.

I want to say the national average is around low-mid 30s, could be wrong though.

But, the potential is unlimited.

And it can take some time to get there. I’ve doubled my income each year since graduating college (not saying much though, lol), but this year it will have slowed down a lot.

There is a very high turnover rate in the industry as well.

If you are a great business person, have an outgoing personality, and decent education you’ll do fine (assuming you have a passion for it).

There are a few trainers at my gym making 6 figures/yr, then there are many that do it part-time and have other jobs.

well most strength & condt. coaches make around 70,000 at the minimum - im pretty sure thats what i read before from nat’l averages and stuff.

personal trainers can make anywhere from minimum wage- 20-25,000 yearly to 100,000 yearly

im pretty curious though as to what you could make from doing shoots and getting front pages. id much rather pursue that than a career in bodybuilding. it seems a whole lot easier and i dont think you have to get rediculously big and bleed danabol.

Private SnC/Trainers coaches who are on top of their game do earn that much…

But i believe the best recession proof kinda work to get into, would be rehab and trainers for middle - elderly clients.

end of the day, its really how much you like your job and how far you’d push it as a career…

how about male stripping? is there enough of a female base to make decent bank off that? id hate to drive out 3 hrs to go to work and theres no way im dancing for dudes.
maybe ill do some porn too and be like Zeb Atlas…i was thinking that Japan has a booming porn industry, i mean they have insane shit going on over there even gameshows where girls just get fucked. only problem is well, i dont speak japanese.

I personally don’t see this being a problem.

youre right, the problem isnt if i speak someone else’s language its if they dont speak mine. but i think a good portion of people speak english there, at least on a low-conversational level.

Point well taken.

I’m fairly certain they all study English.

ask prisoner, He’ll know. IMO that could be an easy ticket to pay for college.

Japs are extremely nationalistic…
they won’t let you in their circle unless you’re one of them…even the hookers don’t do other nationality, thats how bent they are on this topic…

And english is not their forte, you’d need to learn how to speak their language.

i find this extremely hard to believe. japan loves american pop culture. i dont believe for half a second that a japanese girl wouldnt fuck an american, let alone a japanese hooker lmao. especially one as good looking as myself.

or a sports car.

they don’t treat gaijin (foreigners) with the same respect. ie; you can be fired for no reason from you job, its harder to get employed as well.

i think male stripping is not the kind of job you would expect. research it
