To all of the veterans who have tried to make a living in fitness:
I am an undergraduate student currently pursuing a life behind a keyboard, crunching figures and wielding computers. I don’t think that is exactly what I want to do anymore.
I am considering changing my major to exercise science. And this is why I come here. I will, of course, talk to my counselor along with others face to face, but I think that this forum could prove to be a fantastic place to put my questions.
What kind of jobs are there for someone with a degree in Exercise Science? The first things that come to mind are trainers and S&C coaches. If I wanted such a vocation, should I expect a humble house full of coupons?
Is ES even the right degree? is there some other major that would cover the same area, only pay more. I know when I look at some of the programs my university offers for computer science I shake my head.
Some of the real veterans on here probably know what questions I should really be asking which I am not. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
