How to monetize your fitness
In this article we review some of the activities you can use to burn calories, while you get a few euros to give yourself a treat:
Monetize your fitness with gardening
If you are good with plants, gardening can be a good option to improve your physical condition while getting paid for it.
Gardening can burn about 400-600 calories per hour and you’ll find plenty of chores if you know where to look. For example, you can distribute advertising in affluent areas advertising services such as mowing the lawn, cleaning the garden, or trimming hedges. The best thing about offering these types of services is that you will never be short of assignments: the grass never stops growing!
Monetize your fitness by walking dogs on demandIf you’re an animal lover and you’re passionate about fitness, walking dogs could be a great way to get in shape and increase your bottom line. Dog walkers usually charge about 10 euros per hour per dog. If you take several dogs at once, this could be an ideal way to get a supplement.
You will only need a pair of trainers and a few bags to collect the dogs’ needs.
Working as a tour guide
Monetize your fitness by becoming a tour guideIf you have a lot of knowledge about a tourist spot, becoming a guide can be a great idea to earn some money while keeping in shape.

You can start with your own free blog on WordPress.com and then monetize it using a tool like Amazon Associates. Another option, if you don’t have a blog but have a major social networking account (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram), is to approach businesses directly from there.
