Poor mental health can make managing money harder, and worrying about money can cause your mental and physical health to decline.
One survey conducted by one of the largest banks in the US revealed that 81% of respondents found goals much easier to achieve when their finances were in order, while 70% stated that solid finances had a positive impact on their physical health.
Seeing as maintaining your physical fitness, especially in regards to military fitness, requires you to engage in mental and emotional training, ensuring that you are on top of your finances is a great way to not only build strength but also to fund your newfound passion for health.
Be Smart About Health & Fitness Spending
As with any other area of your life, it is a good idea to set a budget for how much you can, and will, spend each month to fund your lifestyle.
A great way to do this is by focusing on making your financial and fitness goals work together – just as you monitor your health status, monitor your finances. Identify triggers that cause you to spend as well as overeat or skip workouts. Make an effort to be mindful of what you are eating and buying, both for health-related reasons as well as personal spending.
And, clean up your life. Get rid of clutter around your house, in your personal life, all throughout your diet and even in your finances. Make an effort to organise your debt by optimising your spending habits and ensuring that your financial health is in just as good shape as your physical health.
Turn a Fitness Passion into a Lucrative Business
If you are really passionate about health and fitness, you can actually turn your love of exercising and participating in boot camps into a lucrative business.
First, begin by assessing your specific physical skill set, experience, the target market in your area, and the earning potential to see if venturing into starting a business is right for you.
If you decide it is right for you, whether as a full-time job or side hustle, there are many options for turning your passion into a financial reality. If you have a lot of experience or have gone through a particularly interesting transformation journey, you can create a blog or vlog and share weekly updates to gain followers to eventually earn money through ads or sponsorships.
If you are a great salesperson, you might want to consider retail nutritional products. Or, if you are particularly keen on coaching, you can even become an online fitness coach to a group of people similar to yourself.
Stay Focused on Your Goals
Whether your goal is to lose weight, build strength or simply transform your training regime into a lifestyle, military training and boot camps are a great way to increase mental, physical and emotional strength in individuals passionate about the health of their life.
Seeing as physical and financial health are directly related, allowing yourself to focus on your financial health and tying it into your fitness goals is a great way to build strength while also ensuring you can fund your lifestyle, however you choose to participate in health and exercise.
