Workaday Workouts

Look, it’s not breaking news that working as a physical trainer or fitness instructor makes you fit. Duh. In that line, it’s an essential job requirement: “People will always judge you on your appearance,” says certified personal trainer Joshua Margolis, of Mind Over Matter Health.

Additional no-brainers in this “fit jobs” category include dancers and athletes. Any active job requiring moving all day, like bike messengers, farmers, construction workers, and landscapers also come to mind. But for this slideshow, we went beyond the most obvious to find some of the less commonly cited occupations in the category—including one we can practically guarantee you didn’t know was a legitimate job.
