I have a question that I hope I can get a lot of guidance from. I have decided to change careers and go back to fitness.
I'm currently working as a computer analyst and I?m quite burned out on this career path. I have 2 years of undergrad work out of the way in college and wanted to know what steps I need to take to become a assistant strength coach or strength coach for a school, college or sports team? I worked as a fitness trainer for 8 years freelance and for a city program but this was 6 years ago.
I pursued computers as I assumed that the big $ would make me happy and I do love computers just not as a career. The real dilemma on my mind is current bills and the fact that I?m just short of 35. I don?t want to be a personal trainer for the public or work at 24hour fitness. I want to work with people who are serious about fitness not people who are there because their doc told them or they have decided to shed a few pounds for summer.
Any insight would be helpful. I?m 100% dedicated to making this change.
