I'm in a well paid job, but want to get into the fitness industry. Currently doing the qualifications. One things that I fear is the drop in salary as the fitness indnustry isn't that well paid in comparison.

I don't hate my current job but i'm not like 'yeah let's go for it' when going to work currently. I still get the dreaded Sunday evening feeling.

I don't want to keep hopping jobs as i've completed a few internships and left one full time role before. I fear if I leave the current industry i'm in i'll regret it, yet I want to do my fitness business.

Any advice?

**** the money, when you do a job that you love the money will find you. Work towards your fitness business and keep working your way up. Next thing you know your Sunday nights will be filled with excitement for the week ahead in the job you've always wanted. Good luck, don't ever settle.

True, I find the pressure from parents have an effect on me too. They say they're supportive in whatever I do, but I know deep down they want me to stay in a stable career.

Seriously forget the money. Ultimately you've got to make a decision, do you work in a job that you're not 100% committed to and don't fully enjoy, but the money is better? Or do you work in a field that you really want to work in, and you will be doing what you love? But the money is a little less? (Not many people get to do what they love for a career) I wanted to be a racing driver growing up, classic boys dream. After realising what it takes to get into it (money, sponsors, connections etc) it dawned that it probably wasn't possible. So I am now attempting to get into another field I love, photography. Good luck in whatever you choose to do though!

I'm the same, i was at uni for 2 years until i broke down and told my parents i couldnt do it anymore (i had only stayed because its what they wanted) but to my surprise they were nothing but supportive when i did choose to leave, now im studying something else and i couldnt be happier. I know its not exactly the same because im talking about studies rather than a job but you get the jist. Good luck

Hi mate,

I'm in the same position as you in a way! I live to train in the gym and currently not attending at uni because my course is a waste of time and been wanting to pursue a career in fitness or coaching... I recently also left what I'd say is a 'dead end job' because I was unhappy there. Difficult mate but 100% do what you love and are happy doing!
