6 jobs you need to be SUPER fit for1 Mar
It’s WorkFit Wellness Month!
As you know we’re all about being active and healthy, and our WorkFit membership is designed to encourage people to stay active while working. It’s really important that we stay fit, whether it’s to fight the effects of sitting at a desk all day, or ensuring we’ve got the strength to lift things and carry out manual jobs.
This month, we thought we’d explore jobs around the world that require you to be super fit. We’re not talking firefighter or tree surgeon (although you have to be fit for both of those), we’re taking it to extreme levels. Whether you need guns of steel or Forrest Gump’s metabolic heart rate, these are the jobs that you’d absolutely need a gym membership for.
The one thing Alfred can’t do for Batman is keep him in tip-top shape – Batman has to do that all on his own. Fighting Bane would be a lot harder if he wasn’t basically all muscle and handsome good looks – and Batman knows this, which is why he trains like a beast. Plus, as Bruce Wayne he’s always drinking wine and champagne at social events, so he’s got to burn those off somehow!
Deep Sea Fisherman
If you’ve ever seen Deadliest Catch, you’ll know that being a Deep Sea Fisherman is one of the most dangerous jobs around. Every day they’re contending with perilous conditions, stormy weather, the boat being thrown across the waves, and hundreds upon hundreds of fish. They need to be fit and strong to deal with all this, and being a strong swimmer is probably a useful skill too! The last thing they want is to end up overboard with hundreds of haunting fish eyes staring back at them.
Dwayne Johnson’s Stunt Double
Apparently, in Hollywood you’re only as good as the guy doing your stunts – so just a bit of pressure there, right? Not only is Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’, but he’s showing up in basically every action film at the moment, meaning his stunt double is working overtime. Not only does this poor guy have to be huge (Johnson’s workout and meal plan is legendary at this point), but he’s also doing dangerous, strenuous stunts on a daily basis!
On the plus side, we found out his stunt double is actually his cousin, so at least they look similar!
This is a tough job, but someone’s got to do it, eh?
You’ve got to be really strong to prise open a croc’s jaws, hold them open and then jam your hand in there to brush their enormous teeth. Unsurprisingly, this isn’t a popular job, and in the wild crocodiles get their teeth cleaned by little birds that sit there and clean the teeth for them!
Usain Bolt’s dog
He’s got to be pretty fast, right? He’s probably the only dog that doesn’t look forward to his walks, especially with his owner being able to run 100m in under 10 seconds!
Donald Trumps hairpiece
In recent news, we’ve seen Donald Trump’s hairpiece has taken a bit of a battering in strong winds. It must have some pretty good upper body strength to be able to cling on like that!
So, these are the top 5 jobs you need to be super fit for. It doesn’t matter if you’re a deep sea fisherman or you work in an office though – everyone needs to be fit, and if you’re looking to workout for less then our WorkFit corporate discount means you could get a full membership for just £26.00 a month for you and your family members!
