What is a great job/career that involves some physical activity?

Asked by pallen123 (1510 points ) July 10th, 2012

I sit at a desk most day as a technology business manager. I’m thinking of making a radical change and switching to a job/career that involves some physical movement during the day. I’m not looking to become a house framer/carpenter although some sort of trade would be cool. I need a bit of creativity in my job and some interaction with humans would be nice. I need to make a decent living as I still have a family and kids to support partially since my wife works too. I’m looking for creative ideas!

could you do research or design development for the business you are already in even keeping your current job and trying it out as a hobby or internship

I’d love to work for myself, work from home, or work from my own shop. I like working with my hands, mechanical things, don’t mind going into people’s homes to work. I like working with the disabled and elderly and kids.

Landscaping, if you like being outdoors. If you get into the design end, you can be very creative with it, too.
