Not interested in sitting behind a desk all day? We get it. Keep your muscles moving and your blood pumping with these careers for active people.

Careers for Active People

We all know that sitting down for hours on end is not good for you. So if you want to stay healthy in the long run, escape office life and stay on your feet with these careers for active people. Here are just a few of the jobs that keep you moving:

  • Choreographer 
  • Educare Teacher
  • Sports Coach
  • Tour Guide
  • Photographer
  • Firefighter
  • Fitness Influencer
  • Paramedic

Choreographer

Create new dance routines to help express your creativity. You can put together dances to entertain people at live concerts or even work in film and television. This is a career that is sure to keep you moving day and night. The best part is that you can be self-taught or train at a prestigious performing arts school in order to get qualified.

Educare Teacher

Children have tons of energy, which means that a career in childcare will have you running after little ones all day! A large part of your job will consist of coming up with games that are educational, fun and allow those bundles of joy to be active. This is especially true if you choose to work in educare

Sports Coach

Are you a sports buff who is ready to pass on the baton and share your knowledge? Then coaching is the job for you. Create meal plans and practice sessions for the players you coach. Get them ready for match day by ensuring that they are in tip-top shape at all times. 

Tour Guide

One of the best ways to see and learn about a new city is through a walking tour. Use your high energy levels to kickstart your career in tourism and take sightseers on an adventure they’ll never forget. 

Photographer

Photographers have to do a lot of physical activity. From squatting on chairs to deep sea diving. Are you willing to go the extra mile for that perfect shot? You’ll also have to be comfortable with carrying equipment of different weights and sizes around all day. Not only will you get your fill of cardio, but weight training too. 

Firefighter

In order to carry out their duties, firefighters have to be strong and flexible. This is because while putting fires out, they have to climb in and out of buildings, sometimes while carrying people or pets. During the training process, you’ll go through a number of fitness tests to make sure you’ll be able to do the job.

Fitness Influencer

Inspire people to live more active lives by posting exercise videos online. Just keep in mind that influencing is not a career that pays immediately. You first need to have a good social media following, and for that you need good marketing skills. But if you’re willing to put in the time and effort, it can be a highly rewarding job.  

Paramedic

Paramedics provide emergency first aid to patients. Once they are stable, they are transported to a hospital. The injured persons may be stuck in positions that aren’t easy to reach, such as in a car that’s been flipped during an accident. This means you’ll have to bend, lift and use heavy equipment to save lives without causing further injury.
