Alexander 's insight:

This was great help to know that this school offers a personal trainer certification, which prepares you to become a personal trainer. This helps me because maybe you don't want to go to school for all the other stuff and just focus on the career you want to go into. This would be the route for you. Going to a insitute like this you will be able to get into the work world the fatest and probably most cost effective also. In order to become a great personal trainer yopu need good edcuation and I think this can offer that to you.

12 Amazing Careers Related to Sports Medicine and Exercise Science

12 Amazing Careers Related to Sports Medicine and Exercise Science | Planning to become a personal trainer | Scoop.it

Under the large umbrella of Exercise Science, the term “Sports Medicine” can have a wide range of meanings which may also consist of an array of disciplines, including the biomechanical, physiological, psychological, and ...

 

 

My thoughts:

 

This article was very helpful because it gave several options besides personal training that would be beneficial tho those with an exercise physiology degree. I am now also interested in being a chiropractor or dwelving into the sports medicine field. Another viable option could be a strength and conditioning coach which is essentially a next tier personal trainer.

Alexander 's insight:

I now realize that with a physiology degree it opens the job possibilities up greatly. If becoming a personal trainer doesn't work out for me I can have other jobs that I could qualify for like a strength and conditioning coach or something in sports medicine. Sports medicine is a very broad topic with many jobs under its umbrella. This helps me greatly because now I can focus on schools that offer this degree and narrow my school choice down. Overall, this is a great article because it opened up to me what other jobs I could go into with just this one degree and you can have many possibilities to what job you want.

I liked how I could see how many years of school you need for each career. It makes me more interested in being in the sports medicine field next year. I'm really interested in being a physical therapist or a trainer myself. The more research I do the more I'll know about the career I want to have.
