What are some jobs that require both a very high physical and mental demand?

I understand many jobs require a combination of the two but I am looking for something requiring an above average amount and comes with a little societal respect such as an astronaut or combat engineer. I would consider a very physically challenging job something like a forestry fire fighter, search and rescue technician, or a charge hand on an oil rig I would consider a very mentally challenging job on that requires a large amount problem solving and continued learning such as an engineer, scientist, an inventor, or military personnel who deals with tactics.
