Does the idea of working at a desk job  for eight hours a day make you cringe? For many Canadians sitting or standing in one place all day is unbearable. They feel bored, tired and inefficient. Do you prefer to earn a living by moving about?

You don't have to suffer through a job when there are so many better suited positions for you available on  If your ideal job involves you earning  a steady income without sitting still have a look at these job titles. 

Here are some career options for people constantly on the go. Don't be bored. Get active on Monster.

Fitness Trainer/ Instructor
Turn up the Latin beat and Zumba your way to a paycheck. Get down on the floor and teach Pilates to earn a living. Be a personal trainer in a gym or visit clients' homes.  Whichever one you choose you'll be working with people helping to reach their fitness goals and there likely won't be a desk/computer chair in sight.

Landscape Specialist
Spend your days outdoors tending to and enhancing the beautiful landscape around you. Grow and maintain vegetation on land and in ponds and fountains. The job is physical in nature; weeding, seeding, watering, mowing use all of your muscle groups.  Be a catalyst for growth and renewal.
