The best way to avoid all problems that come up with the other types of employment is to have your own business. When you’re the boss, you get to create your own schedule and work around it, which means you can easily manage to fit in all of the workouts and meals in the working day.
The downside of it is that starting a new business from scratch can consume a lot of your time and energy – for a long period of time, so it could leave you drained up and unable to truly focus on your bodybuilding goals. But if you succeed at overcoming these difficulties, the flexibility you’ll earn will most certainly pay off.
But if that’s too much for you at the moment, you could try working at home for a company – the risks are fewer, the job could be less demanding and it will give you almost the same freedom and flexibility to work out and eat at optimal times as being self-employed.
3. Personal trainer
We’ve saved the best for last. Many bodybuilders consider this job to be the perfect one. Personal trainers stay active by helping others to achieve their fitness goals, which in turn supports their own motivation to keep on chiseling out their ideal body. The working hours are flexible, the income is usually pretty good, and you don’t have to ever leave the gym!
Talk about doing the thing you love for work. But keep in mind that once you’ve decided to pursue this kind of a career, you’ll have to invest a certain amount of time and money in order to achieve your goal. And no matter how fit you are, certifications don’t come easily. The preparation process for becoming a certified personal trainer can take a while and it will include expanding your knowledge by studying anatomy and kinesiology and taking a lot of exams.
Becoming a respected personal trainer who’s able to both inspire and teach others requires hard work and dedication. But if you get there, consider yourself being on the top!
Finding a job that optimally suits your needs and talents can be an exhausting process – you might have to work some shitty jobs along the way. There are going to be some hard days for sure, but with a solid amount of motivation and self-discipline, you will get where you want to be. If you’re truly passionate about bodybuilding in the long-term, keep working hard and don’t let anything get in the way of your goals!
