As if getting in shape isn’t rewarding enough, you can make a career out of it! At BlogHer, the beautiful and talented Kelly said something that really stuck “I love my life! I get paid to do what I love: workout and be healthy”. I started really thinking about ways I could do the same (or ways I am doing the same) and thought I would throw it out there to any of you who were interested. So, here are some ideas to make money andÂ while gettingÂ (or keeping)Â a slammin’ body! (Photo source)
Become a BeachBody Coach: While it does cost $39.95 for your business kit, and $14.95 per month toÂ stay active, Â as long as you are a coach you get an awesome discount on any of their products (P90x, Insanity, Shakeology, TurboFire, etc), and you get a commission off what you (and everyone on your team) sells.

Become a Certified Personal Trainer: A certificate is needed and prices can vary. I recommend getting one from ISSA, ACE, NASM, or AFAA as these are all reputable names. I got mine through the ISSA for around $600 but you can earn the money back by taking on clients around your schedule in their homes, or by working in a gym.
Become a Group Fitness Instructor: This can range from a generic exercise instructor to something more specific like Zumba, Yoga, Pilates, etc. If you like working with a group of people and motivating others, this could be the path for you! Again, you can get this from various places but I suggest ACEÂ or AFAA .
