#1

Hey guys just wondering if any of ya have a job in fitness/exercise or nutrition. I am currently at a point in my life were I really don't know what I want to do with it. I like to workout and I was maybe wondering about a career in nutrition or something. Anyone have any advice and then maybe get certified as a trainer or something? Anyway just wonder. Thanks

Find out what you need to do for a starting level floor job in a gym, get whatever qualification/certificate you need, and get some experience.

Experience is the key to figuring out if this line of work is for you or not.

It's not for everyone.

Work on the gym floor is the apprenticeship of the fitness industry, where you get all the dirty jobs and experience that will help you in future. Have to start somewhere...good luck.
