What job can I get instead of personal trainer with the same background as a personal trainer?
Other than being a personal trainer at a gym, what kinds of jobs can and how much money can I make by becoming in great shape and knowing alot about weightlifting. Can you get a job at a hospital as a personal trainer and make good money, and hard is it? Or at a big business? Or what other jobs are there where I can use that knowledge, like working for fitness magazines, pharmacuticals, etc...?

A lot of businesses are starting to incorperate fitness into their companies. You could try that. Also try schools, rehabilitation centers, retirement homes and care centers. I'm not sure about the pay scales. Good Luck :)

you can be a group trainer, a gym teacher, or a physical therapist. For the last 2, you'll need additional qualifications
