    Best job for a bodybuilder??

    I've been considering going back to college but with more intent of completing it this time. I quit last time because I was already given the job I was schooling for. So even at my age, bodybuilding has been my lifestyle for quite a while and one that my wife is more then supportive with so everything for it runs smoothly. My question is what carrers would be beneficial in yalls opinion in continuing on a prosperous bodybuilding career? One I have been considering is being a firefighter. They work the 24/48 hour shifts which would prove a good amount of time for rest, cooking and training. Grante some nights at work may be fairly busy. I know some of u may criticize it may be foolish to choose any career of the basis of your bodybuilding but I also have deeper emotional ties in a career like this. Just curious as to what anyone else's insight may be. And if anyone happens to know what salary or hourly wages a full time fighter make on average. I do understand with more education and time in the department and location would vary this. I'm just curious for te starting firefighter in an 'average' location with say a emt cert with other basic medical certs.

    Thanks ahead of time

    You're talking about the best type of job that would ACCOMODATE a bodybuilding lifestyle? Or something surrounding the field of bodybuilding?

    There aren't many jobs out there that accomodate a bodybuilding lifestyle. The top 3 I can think of is: win the lottery, become a pro, or an office job of some sort? Not too sure if firefighting or any emergency service jobs would be good since you're always on the go. I'm in the military (reserves right now but a long time ago was full time), and if firefighting or police, etc. are anything like that... its very difficult to maintain a bodybuilding lifestyle because you're always on the go if this is what you're doing as a career.

    Home depot was a good suggestion lol.

    Oh man you've got that right. I've been a trainer for about 6 years now. Did it full time for a couple years and was going to shoot myself. I've found a happy medium right now with it at a part time basis but even then its still agonizing at times...

    I just realized you said bodybuilding lifestyle. My goal is health and fitness so my choices differ. Atomini is right, something like an office job or something where you're not on your feet as much is more suitable

    Hahaha I did think I'd be this much of a therapist. And depending on people to actually do what u say or take advice is sometimes beating a dead horse. A lot of times I want I explode!!! They want results and wonder y they don't get
    Them even after I obviously point out its because they fail to follow trough own either food or thier own workouts. Training children mostly. Hopefully as I become a more established bodybuilder ican recruit more serious athletes and people of the sort I know will do the plans I set out.

    I had one woman that would randomly cry in complete silence when neither of us were talking for no reason. OH MY GOD... Then I'd be te therapist. I'm all for increasing someone's mental ability, mentality and focus (one of the things I'm
    Best at with my clients) but she was just something else lol

    You could always follow Arnold Scharzennegars footsteps when he was an up and coming bodybuilder and go gay for pay..
    Didn't hurt nor bother him none. It was all about the money. Just keep a little listerine handy to gargle afterwards..

    Being a dietician is probably your best bet.

    Dietitians and nutritionists are experts in food and nutrition. They advise people on what to eat in order to lead a healthy lifestyle or achieve a specific health-related goal

    You're either self-employed or working in a cafeteria, hospital, nursing home, etc.

    Most dietitians have a Bachelor's degree and many states require Dietitians to be licensed.

    The median annual wage was around $50,000 to 60,000 dollars in 2010 and the job is expected to have an increase of 20% between 2010 and 2020, faster than average all occupations.

    Here's their duties, sorry for the long post:

    Dietitians and nutritionists typically do the following:

    Explain nutrition issues
    Assess patients' and clients' health needs and diet
    Develop meal plans, taking both cost and clients' preferences into account
    Evaluate the effects of meal plans and change the plans as needed
    Promote better nutrition by giving talks to groups about diet, nutrition, and the relationship between good eating habits and preventing or managing specific diseases
    Keep up with the latest nutritional science research
    Some dietitians and nutritionists provide customized information for specific individuals. For example, a dietitian or nutritionist might teach a patient with high blood pressure how to use less salt when preparing meals. Others work with groups of people who have similar needs. A dietitian or nutritionist might, for example, plan a diet with reduced fat and sugar to help overweight people lose weight.

    Although all dietitians and nutritionists do similar tasks, there are several specialties within the occupations. The following are examples of types of dietitians and nutritionists:

    Clinical dietitians provide medical nutrition therapy. They work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and other institutions. They create both individualized and group nutritional programs based on the health needs of patients or residents. Clinical dietitians may further specialize, such as working only with patients with kidney diseases. They may work with other healthcare professionals.

    Management dietitians plan meal programs. They work in food service settings such as cafeterias, hospitals, and food corporations. They may be responsible for buying food and for carrying out other business-related tasks. Management dietitians may oversee kitchen staff or other dietitians.

    Community dietitians educate the public on topics related to food and nutrition. They often work with specific groups of people, such as pregnant women. They work in public health clinics, government and non-profit agencies, health maintenance organizations (HMOs), and other settings.

    I lost 50 pounds the ait and basic some was fat but most was muscle unfortunately but there are a lot of bodybuilders in the army. After you attain some rank you can easily afford groceries if you don't live extravagantly. That's my opinion. I bought a cheap car now that i'm done training and my wife and I live modestly. I'll be able to really bodybuild again when i'm around 23 I think. By then I'll be making more

    A food and beverage director at a casino seems like a good job for a bodybuilder.

    You could probably look into an online college like Keiser University also. This would allow you to finish faster, complete school on your own time, more free time, work while doing it, more time with wife, etc.

    Well since I wasn't around back then I can't say 100% for sure but rumor had it that he and several known BB'ers went a little on the wild side to support their gear habits. Some only J/O'd for guys, I'm told but others went all the way. Again since I can't prove it, and don't know anyone from that circle who can, it's only rumor. But who knows, those were apparently wild times back then. Seems to me though that there was a documentary or tv interview one time spilling this information on them.

    Is that cheaper as well? And are online degrees looked at differently then in class degrees?

    Don't know about back then, but it is a well known fact that many of the current pros as well as sub-pros are doing this... many of their faces can and have been seen in some gay porn magazines apparently.

    Yes, and it depends.

    Honestly, online college vs. traditional depends on your personal preference.

    Since a bachelor's degree is the minimum amount of education necessary for a career as a dietician, suitable majors you'll want to pursue include food service systems management, dietetics and food nutrition.

    Ideally, you'll want to pursue a degree program that has accreditation and approval from the American Dietetic Association's Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education. I'm not certain if most online schools offer that.

    Coursework you can expect to complete in a dietician program includes advanced nutrition, community nutrition, nutrition counseling, food science principles, life cycle nutrition, medical nutrition and food service management. Some science classes you may take include biochemistry, chemistry, human anatomy, physiology and microbiology.

    If you go to an accredited online university, such as the University of Phoenix, you will be scored on most hiring sheets in the same bracket as low/mid tier or state schooling (i.e. Florida State University, ETSU, ETC.)

    You will have the added addition of several years work experience that others of your age group will not have because they went to traditional schools, which employers will look for.

    Of course you won't get the same results from your degree as a student from Stanford or Yale. That is extremely unrealistic.

    Only smaller employers will have any problem recognizing your degree at the same level as a traditional degree from a similiar University.

    Many empoyers have professional contracts with schools like the University of Phoenix for their employees.

    Times have changed and it's frowned upon less these days, plus the money is so damned good they can't turn it down. I mean when you can make upwards of ten grand in one shoot and your finances are tight well....money talks...

    Many empoyers have professional contracts with schools like the University of Phoenix for their employees.
    Would the school tell me if they have those contracts for said degree graduates in that field?

    I considered a degree in nutrition. I still am sort of. . . . But, you will be working with diabetics and the obese. It is the job, I looked into it quite a bit. A licensed Dietitian is the actual job you will be shooting for. Unless you get super lucky and get some sort of dietitian roll for the famous or some shit.


    That's why I am going for either engineering or computer science. Engineering sounds great, but most work for their money. I don't see myself really wanting to be tied into a super demanding job. I rather cut my pay by about 10-20% then live at work.

    I feel you there. Sucks being in the construction business and working 10-12 hours non stop and try to get motivated for the gym. I do it, but alot of times I think I would have been better off to stay at home.

    Accredited Education Programs
    The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics is the Academy's accrediting agency for education programs preparing students for careers as registered dietitians or dietetic technicians, registered.

    Only graduates of ACEND-accredited programs are eligible to take the exam to become a Registered Dietitian or Dietetic Technician, Registered. Individuals who only have degrees in nutrition, dietetics or other related areas from programs that are not ACEND-accredited are NOT ELIGIBLE to take the exam to become a Registered Dietitian or Dietetic Technician, Registered. Several programs that are NOT accredited by ACEND include:


    American InterContinental University
    Ashford University
    Ashworth College
    Capella University
    Clayton College of Natural Health

    Huntington College of Health Sciences
    Jones International University
    Kaplan University
    National American University
    University of Phoenix

    Phoenix, Kaplan, and Capella are a no go. You still have other online schools like ITT: Technical Institute and Devry University. I'd contact them.

    Youre going to have to ask yourself, what do I like/love to do? what's interesting to me that I think I would like to do? what am I good at now? am I willing to take a so-so payin job so I can do what I love?, which is BBing. That type of stuff & start narrowing it down.
