Earn While You Burn Doing These 8 Physically Demanding Jobs

2. Waiter/Waitress

FitnessBlender.com puts waitressing in the same category of high calorie-burning jobs including construction workers, farmers and custodians. “They might range widely in nature, but what they have in common is that they cover a lot of distance, or spend a lot of time hefting themselves or materials around in order to get a job done,” notes the source.

People in this position take roughly 1,500-steps per hour, which can burn 175-calories per hour (based on a 145-pound person), according to the source. That number may also go up if you factor in carrying multiple plates full of food that’s required as part of the job.
