Prefer a Short Workweek?
Massage therapists and fitness trainers work fewer hours per week than any other professionals. These fields are growing fast as well, although the pay is less than many other fields. Many positions are contract, without benefits (which some people could find stressful). The median annual massage therapist salary was $34,900 in 2010, according to the BLS. Fitness trainers earned a median of $31,090.
