Ok so you’re going to need to get qualified to start personal training on the side, but once you have the right qualifications you can earn some serious money.

To start getting clients, consider working at your local gym and starting conversations with members to drum up some interest. 

An alternative option is to start a social media page and build a following showing off your knowledge and workouts. 

Tip: Once you have your first customers and they have had some good results from you, use some before and after shots with a reference.

Transformations are one of the best ways to get customers queuing for your services. 

Virtual Classes 

Potential Income: $10-$15 per class

To kick us off we have virtual classes. This can be a pretty lucrative fitness side hustle because if you’re charging $10 per person and you have 100 people in your class… you’ll be making $1000 per class! 

Running a virtual class has never been easier. With the likes of Zoom, Zype and MindBody you can stream your fitness class straight from your home or studio. 

Dance, Boxing, HIIT, Pilates whatever you specialize in you can stream. 

Sports Coaching  

Income Potential: Varies on sport and level of training

This could be the best fitness side hustle if you enjoy working 1-2-1 with clients and get great satisfaction from helping others get better at a sport. 

Whether someone wants to get a faster time running 5km or needs help with their tennis serve, you could earn money coaching them to achieve their goals.

The main value your client will get from your coaching is:

  • Accountability 
  • Tailored Guidance 
  • Feedback 
  • Motivation

To attract clients to your coaching services consider offering free workshops or sessions. This can help showcase your skills and build trust before they commit.

Another great way is to show the results of previous clients, testimonials are golden in convincing clients you’re the real deal and have a proven track record.

The amount you get paid depends on your certification and the area of sport you coach. Youth-level coaching will generally pay less but can be hugely rewarding.

Fitness Blog 

Potential Income: $1-$100,000+ month

How could I not talk about blogging when you’re reading mine right now?

Blogging can be a great way of making money, certain niches are more lucrative than others. Luckily for you, fitness is one of those. 

By writing articles about what people are searching for on the internet you can drive traffic (people) to your website. 

Here are the 4 main ways of monetising your blog:

  • Advertising 
  • Affiliate Marketing 
  • Selling Digital Products 
  • Sponsored Content

In my opinion, the most lucrative way to make money from your fitness blog is affiliate marketing. 

This is when you write an article or review on a product, you leave an affiliate link in the article and if somebody buys the product by clicking on your link, then you make a commission from the sale. 

Sell Meal Plans 

Income Potential: $50-$200 per plan 

It’s a common problem, you get home from the gym and you haven’t got a clue of what to cook, or you’ve been going to the gym for a while but you’re not seeing any results. 

More often than not it’s because your portion control isn’t correct or your macros aren’t balanced right for your goals. 

This is where you come in! You could start selling meal plans so people can have the food decisions taken out of their hands and know what they’re cooking is right for their goals.

To drum up some interest in what you’re selling I would suggest posting visually appealing posts with the food from your meal plans. 

Once you have some customers who have had success with your plans, start posting some success stories, This shows people you’re the real deal!

This can be a valuable fitness side hustle as there’s an ever-growing demand for healthier living.

You can leverage the power of convenience and your passion for fitness to generate an income while you help people achieve their fitness goals.

Run CrossFit Classes

Income Potential:  $75-$225 per month/person

Are you into the gruelling workouts of CrossFit? How about teaching classes yourself?

CrossFit has grown tremendously since it came onto the scene in 2007. It boasts a 20% rise in traffic (people searching the internet) at the beginning of the year. 

You’ll need a level one trainer certification to start teaching. After you’re qualified it’s a good idea to take a closer look at how others teach their classes and how you can adopt your style of teaching.

If you’re going to take teaching your classes seriously then you’re going to need to create a business plan. Determine your class offering, pricing, location and marketing strategies.

The next step is to network and build relationships. Attend CrossFit events to connect with fellow coaches and athletes. This way you can get your name out there and possibly find clients that will want to take your classes.

Remember, coaching CrossFit is about helping people progress at their own pace whilst fostering a great sense of community and support. 

Fitness Influencer

Income Potential: $10-$100,000 + monthly

Influencers get a bad rap, but you can make some serious money if you’re dedicated. 

Starting a social media page and creating quality helpful content will get eyeballs to you. If you are consistent and ever-present on your page you’ll be able to create a loyal engaged audience which you can monetise.

The main revenue streams for an influencer are: 

  • Sponsored Posts
  • Memberships For Exclusive Content 
  • Affiliate Marketing 
  • Collaborations 
  • Coaching 
  • Meal Plans 
  • Exercise Plans 

If you’re just starting I would suggest creating content around pain points within the fitness industry. If you can solve these problems you’re sure to get followers.

The next tip is to be your true self, people aren’t stupid and being authentic online is crucial to building a strong following. Share your fitness journey, including your successes and challenges. 

Remember building a strong online presence will take time and effort. Find a healthy amount of time you can commit to becoming an influencer, it’s easy to overwork and become burnt out. 

This can be a great fitness side hustle that can leverage the power of social media and turn your passion for fitness into a great money-making venture.

Sell Workout Plans  

Income Potential: $50-$200+ per plan 

It’s a common problem, you turn up to the gym, you use a few machines and then have a run on the treadmill, and then you’re done. 

No plan = floating around the gym with no direction. 

Selling workout plans can be a great way of giving your clients direction and it will help them towards their goals.

You can charge by the week, month or a 12-week plan. 

To get started you can find clients at your local gym, through social media or advertise on freelance sites like Fiverr. 

Fitness YouTube Channel

Income Potential: $10-$100,000 + monthly

Starting a YouTube channel as a fitness side hustle can make you some great money.

However be warned, it will be hard at the start if you don’t have video editing skills and it won’t make you money straight off the bat.

To be a successful fitness YouTuber you’re going to need to make great content that is engaging, entertaining and solves people’s problems.  

At the start, the equipment won’t matter too much, but over time it would be wise to invest in better cameras, microphones and video editing software. 

Thumbnails are more important than people think for YouTube, it’s the moment when someone decides whether or not they’re going to watch a video.

To get people to click on your thumbnail make sure it’s eye-catching and the title is clearly what the video is about (not clickbait).

Fitness Podcast 

Income Potential: $10-$100,000 + monthly 

Can you talk about a sport for hours and hours? Well, creating a podcast could be just for you!

There’s a bit more than talking to the podcast guest or your host that makes a great podcast.

  • Clear concept and focus 
  • Compelling content
  • Engaging hosts 
  • High-quality audio
  • Structured format 
  • Effective storytelling 
  • Varied pace and tone
  • Guests and interviews 
  • Consistency
  • Authenticity 

The biggest platforms with the largest audiences are YouTube, Spotify and Apple Podcasts. This is where listeners are looking for podcasts.

Referee Matches 

Income Potential: Depends on sport and level

How about refereeing as a fitness side hustle? The majority of competitive sports need a referee and it’s a great way to keep active.

You’ll most likely need to get trained and certified with the relevant associations or governing bodies. Completing these courses will give you the credibility to begin refereeing.

To get your first chance at referring it’s a good idea to join associations. They can provide you with ongoing education, details on rule changes and match opportunities. 

As a referee, you’ll need to be fair and decisive while under pressure. You’ll need to make sure the game flows and you will inevitably have to deal with some conflict in some sports, so consider that.

Whilst it can be a rewarding fitness side hustle, be prepared for the responsibility that comes with ensuring the integrity of the game. In other terms, it’s helpful to have thick skin. 

Buy And Resell Sporting Goods 

Income Potential: $10-$200+ per item

This fitness side hustle can make you quick money if you’ve got an eye for undervalued sporting goods being sold. 

Here are the steps to fast money reselling:

  1. Make an offer below the asking price (profit is made in the buying)
  2. Receive the item and make sure it’s in good condition.
  3. Take great pictures and list the item at a higher price.
  4. Wait for someone to offer you your desired price. 

It’s as easy as that. Be aware that some places will take a small cut like eBay, but you could easily sell it on Facebook Marketplace for free. 

Create A Course 

Income Potential: $30-$1000+ per course

Creating a course is a great way of packaging your knowledge into bite-size videos and selling it for a profit.

Firstly you’ll need to identify your niche within the fitness realm. 

Next research your target audience’s needs and preferences shaping your course content accordingly. 

You’re going to need a structured curriculum so it’s easy to follow. Instructional videos, written materials and interactive elements work best.

Platforms such as Udemy, Teachable or Coursera are great for selling your course as they have an existing audience looking for what you’re selling.

Selling it on your website is just as good. You’ll just have to market it so that people discover it.

Write A Ebook 

Income Potential: $5-$50+ per Ebook

Writing an E-book about a certain area of the fitness world can be a great way of making passive income.

I say passive income because you only have to write an E-book once and you can sell it an infinite amount of times. This is due to its digital nature as it can be stored online.

That being said you’ll need to get your Ebook in front of the right people to make sales, this is where the marketing comes in. 

If you have an existing audience this would help. If you don’t then Kindle Direct Publishing is a marketplace with the biggest audience of people looking for Ebooks.

Check out this list of the best digital products if you’re interested in making money from digital products.

Start a Fitness Membership Site 

Income Potential: $1-$200+ per member

Membership websites have grown in popularity. One of the most popular is Netflix.

You could create a fitness membership website using WordPress, Kajabi or Teachable to provide premium fitness content. This could include original content, videos, tutorials, fitness classes, recipes or audio files. 

Successful membership sites release continuous content to keep members engaged. They should also offer a tier system, each tier containing more value as the price increases. 

Setting up a membership site comes with a lot of upfront work. That being said, this online business model can be highly profitable as the revenue is predictable once you have an established loyal customer base.

Nutrition-Focused Cooking Classes

Income Potential: $80 per person

Have you ever heard of the 80/20 rule in fitness? It means that 80% of the results come from the food you eat and 20% comes from the workouts.

You could provide cooking classes to teach what you should be eating, the quantities and that healthy nutritious food doesn’t have to be bland! 

By providing this service you can be bettering people’s food choices as well as earning some good money on the side.

Providing boot camps is a great way of bringing people together with a common goal.

Next, you’ll need to pick a location but be mindful of the legal considerations you may need to obtain a permit or license to run your boot camp. Check with your local authority or council.

Boot camps usually have equipment such as resistance bands, dumbbells and mats, you can progress onto more advanced equipment as your sessions become more popular. 

Now you’ll have to decide whether to price your boot camps monthly or per session. Look at competitors and see they’re pricing so you remain competitive.

Finally, it’s time to set a schedule for your boot camps and then start marketing. To drum up interest consider local advertising, leaflets, social media and word of mouth.

Income Potential: $40-$70+ per session

If you’re into Parkour then have you considered 1-2-1 sessions? Somebody out there might be looking to get to your level and you could train them.

For example:

  • Make time for a proper warm-up
  • Use protective gear (knee pads, elbow pads)
  • Emphasize controlled progress to avoid your client attempting any advanced moves prematurely.

These steps are essential for reducing the risk and practising safe parkour. 

That being said it can be hugely rewarding to see the progression and if it’s your passion, then this could be your perfect fitness side hustle!

The exercise has made a big comeback thanks to celebs giving it a go. Why not research shows it builds strength, improves balance and supports bone health?

If you’ve never heard of this exercise before and you think it would look fun to teach, then I would consider going along to a few classes first to give it a try.
