Bodybuilding is not just a hobby but a passion for many people. Building and maintaining a great physique can be a tasking process that requires time, dedication and hard work. However, it’s possible to turn your passion for bodybuilding into a stream of income. In this article, we will explore 5 different techniques that you can employ to monetize your physique, using real-life examples.
1. Become A Model
Modeling isn’t just for women: there is still a thriving niche in the modeling industry for men with the ‘right physique.’ In this niche, your job responsibility would be modelling clothing items, jewelry and other commercial goods for public consumption.
To get started, create a profile on a modeling and/or body-building platform that outsources body builders to companies who require such services. Bodybuilders.com is an excellent place to start. As your profile increases, your earning potential will increase as well.
2. Compete in Bodybuilding Contests
Bodybuilding contests are a great way to put your name out there to garner publicity, which in turn will boost your earning potential. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a good example of a bodybuilder who went on to have a successful career in Hollywood. Competing in these contests paved the way for his career in the entertainment industry.
So why not take the right steps to bulk up with the aim of winning your state’s local bodybuilding contest? Doing so could lead to great opportunities in the entertainment and media industry.
3. Create a Fitness Blog
As the art of bulking up is always a personal journey, many bodybuilders have achieved their personal bodybuilding goals through hard work and perseverance. If you have achieved your own personal goal, consider sharing your experience with others by creating a personal blog.
By providing expert tips and advice on your personal experiences, you can monetize your bodybuilding experience. Make sure that the tips and advice you provide are from your own experience, as this is the only way to build a successful personal blog. Strength Trainer Mike Mahler’s blog is an excellent example that you can use as inspiration for your own personal blog.
4. Kick-start a Career as a Personal Trainer
Having a great physique ultimately means that you have developed healthy eating and training habits over an extended period of time. If you have achieved your own personal goals or the proverbial 10,000 hours, the next step may be teaching others.
To become a personal trainer, you may need to take education courses and obtain certification. Your interpersonal skills and your ability to teach will also play a crucial role in determining your success rate in the long run. You must be willing to put in the effort to become a professional personal trainer, but it may end up being a lucrative career once you start building a loyal client base.
5. Start Your Own Supplement Company
Most bodybuilders make use of food and health supplements throughout their careers in the bodybuilding industry. If you fall under this category and are knowledgeable about the supplements you take, you can help future bodybuilders select the right kind of supplements while generating income.
You can sell supplements to third-party retailers or startup your own supplement line/company. To do this right, you must invest your money and other resources for an extended period of time. This may be the most challenging of all techniques, but it could be the most profitable in the long run.
In conclusion, there are numerous ways to monetize your physique, and these are just a few of the most effective methods. With the right steps at the turn of the New Year, you can increase your earning power through something you love: bodybuilding.
