    Respect the directness and honesty when discussing the different fields and it’s not evident you have knowledge in the field which is reflected in the video. Great video and very informative🙏🏻🔥

    Nah, the truth on why being a Personal Trainer is a ‘popular’ career choice is due to the low entry requirements, and commitment to attain it. Personal Training only requires some high school diploma/pre-University education for entry to get certified, and Personal Trainers can get certified in a few weeks or even over a weekend, unlike Exercise Science Professionals who require minimally a Bachelor’s degree which takes at least 3 to 4 years.
    Unfortunately, many Personal Trainers out there who aren’t graduates of Exercise/Sports Science, know close to NOTHING on exercise science (they know how to only conduct exercise, but know nothing about the intricacies behind the science and physiology of exercise), yet think they know everything about exercise and fitness, make bad decisions in their practice, getting their clients injured, or not training the clients according to exercise principles and guidelines.🙄🙄🙄

    As for Exercise Physiologists, they don’t majorly do "Lab work". What you’ve described is more for that of Sports Physiologists rather than Exercise Physiologists, as Sports Physiologists work more with sporting performance enhancement rather than community exercise interventions. EPs also work in healthcare settings delivering Exercise Rehabilitation interventions, usually alongside a multidisciplinary team of Doctors, Physiotherapists/Physical therapists, Occupational therapists, Dietitians, etc. Exercise Physiologists see patients from varied populations too, e.g. patients with musculoskeletal injuries(back pain, sports injuries, ACL reconstruction, etc); patients with metabolic conditions (diabetes, hypertension); patients with other chronic/debilitating conditions (cancer, kidney disease, stroke, Parkinson’s, dementia, etc), where these populations required exercise interventions to get better, stronger or more functional.

    Great video brotha. One question, I heard you say you need to be in a graduate program to become an exercise physiologists? Would that just be to become a registered clinical EP?

    This video was extremely useful for helping me transition from an engineering major into the Excercise Science world. Thank you!

    I’m starting college in the spring majoring in exercise science. I’m looking forward to it!
