When you think of the most physically active jobs out there, you might think of professional athletes or construction workers.


But you might be surprised which other jobs get you moving.

To find out, we used data from the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), a US Department of Labor database with detailed information on occupations. We looked at its ratings for five different types of physical activity: dynamic strength, explosive strength, time spent walking or running, stamina, and trunk strength. All are ranked on a scale 1 (low) to 100 (high).

Read on to find out which jobs are the most physically active.
