Exercise and Fitness
I am a fitness enthusiastist passionate about making a career in the fitness/wellness industry. What advice or recommendations can you give to help me get started?
Not knowing how old you are or at what stage of schooling you are at, I am guessing that you are young and are just now thinking you may wish to enter the fitness field as a professional career? If I am correct, I would talk to individuals working in the field and ask what they like and dislike about their work. You will also want to research colleges offering courses or degrees in exercise science, health promotion, or related field. Good luck to you.
