Do you love nutrition and exercise? Enjoying these things is both great for your health as well as a great hobby to have. What would you think if your passion for health could be more than just a hobby? Follow any of these suggestions to turn your hobby into a career!

Open a Business

Perhaps the most obvious way to turn your hobby into a career is to setup a business. While you can open a store that sells supplements or exercise equipment, having a physical storefront isn't the only way to make money.
If you already have a good deal of money, considering investing in or opening your own gym. This is a great step to take if you have previously earned a business degree or have worked in a gym yourself. This way, you can know many of the ins and outs of running this type of business already.
If you don't want to go through the trouble of renting a storefront or leasing a gym building, you can also go into business for yourself as a dietitian or nutritionist.
To become a licensed dietitian or nutritionist, most states require that you earn a bachelor's degree in a related field, train as an apprentice, and become licensed through the state. Once you have a license, you can work from home, in a hospital, a gym, or in a variety of similar establishments.

Start a Blog or Vlog

If you are not interested in opening your own business, but instead prefer to write, then blogging or running a vlog (video blog) could be the right choice for you. However, you may be thinking, "How am I supposed to make money off of a blog?" Well, there are a few different ways you can do this.
First things first, to make money off either a blog or a vlog, you need to produce content. This usually involves writing articles for a blog or posting videos on Youtube or another video platform for a vlog. Once you have a decent following on one of these, you can move on to making money.
It should be noted that it often takes several months for blogs and vlogs to become popular enough to make money, so it's best not to quit your day job right away.
Perhaps one of the best and easiest ways to make money off a blog is through affiliate marketing. With this form of marketing, you are essentially selling links that lead to products, usually sold by an online shop, like Amazon. You can make small amounts of money each time someone views, clicks on, or buys something from your links.
Of course, someone buying something from the link will earn you more money than if someone simply views the link. One other way to make money off a blog is to sell ad space. These can be video ads or picture or gif based ads that lead off-site. If you decide to use affiliate marketing, it is important to state that in your blog's privacy policy page.
As for vlogs, the easiest and most common way to make money is to place ad breaks in the video, especially if you are posting your videos on YouTube. With these ads, the more people that watch your video, the more money you will make. If your videos become popular enough, you may even earn a sponsorship!
As you can see, there are so many ways that you can turn your love of fitness and nutrition into a career or money-making hobby. Whether you want to open your own business or work in a health and fitness-related field, or instead write or make videos about the topic, you can make a living on your passion. Work hard, be patient, and you will see results!
