For some people, teaching a few classes as an instructor or training a couple of clients per week is a perfect side hustle. But what if you’re a full-time fitness professional? Is there a good side hustle that will bring in a few extra dollars? Yes! Writing, specifically about fitness and exercise, is a great opportunity for full-time fitness professionals.

On this episode of Empowered Entrepeneur, Amanda shares how she got started in fitness writing, how to pitch your work to an editor, and her favorite pieces to write. This episode will help you understand the business of fitness writing so you can determine if it’s something you want to add to your already-crazy schedule.

Exercise is all about having the energy and vitality to do what you want to do when you want to do it. Whether you want to compete in a Tough Mudder-type obstacle course race or play with your kids (or grandkids) exercise can help you enjoy your life to the fullest and my role as a personal trainer is to help you achieve that potential. For the past number of years I've been an educator working for the largest personal training certification (the American Council on Exercise) where I helped create a wide variety of education to support how fitness professionals work with their clients. I've had the opportunity to teach workshops to personal trainers around the world and have been quoted in numerous publications (NY Times, LA Times, Washington Post, Shape, SELF, etc...) but the bottom line is that I enjoy helping people change their lives and achieve their maximum potential through exercise. If your goal is to use exercise to enhance your life and you're in the San Diego area, then please contact me.
