Healthy Help Wanted

Job search site Glassdoor.com recently identified the top ten employment opportunities for staying fit, so it got me to thinking about a career switch. After all, if my job could carry some of my healthy-living load, I wouldn’t have to spend so much of my precious spare time at the gym. I did a quick pros/cons list of the careers on their list…

Personal Trainer

Benefit – Access to fitness equipment and surrounded by people working toward their healthy living goals.

– Might get myself as client.



Benefit – Opportunity to spend great deal of time outdoors doing physical labor.

Downside – Have you seen my yard?

Retail Sales Associate

Benefit – Not stuck in a chair all day. Get chance to talk to people.

– People I get chance to talk to probably ignorant, stupid and/or angry.



– Really get to help people, run through red lights and slide down pole. Plus, gives my chance to use my “getting dressed fast” skills.

– Might have to fight a fire.


– Nontraditional means to get in lots of exercise during day.

Downside – Parents may get mad if I lose one of their kids at park.


Tour Guide

Benefit – Lots and lots of walking.

– Pretty sure I’d just make up “facts” about everything.


News Photographer

Benefit – Get to run around and be extremely active during workday.

– I don’t have a camera.


Benefit – Get chance to spend day outdoors doing strenuous labor.

Downside – Gravity.

Furniture Delivery Driver

Benefit – Lots of heavy lifting. Chance to get behind wheel of big truck and menace other drivers.

– Makes my back hurt just to think about it.


– Serious sprinting. Decent tips.

Downside – Dammit! Where’d I park that dude’s Porsche?


  1. How about a professional marathon runner. You forgot about that dumbass!

  2. I'd rethink that Personal Trainer gig. When else would you have the opportunity to scream through a megaphone "DO AS I SAY - NOT AS I DO!"

  6. I drop a comment when I especially enjoy a article on a website or I have
    something to add to the conversation. It's triggered by the passion communicated in the article I read. And after this post "Healthy Help Wanted". I was actually moved enough to post a thought :-) I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright.
    Could it be only me or does it appear like some of the responses come across as if they are left by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are posting at other online sites, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post. Would you make a list the complete urls of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  15. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site. It's simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you've done a very good job with this.
    Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari.
    Excellent Blog!
