Is An Exercise Science Degree Worth It

Is An Exercise Science Degree Worth It

Welcome back to another Sorta Healthy trainer education video!

In this video, Jeff is discussing whether or not an exercise science degree is worth it.

As someone who has a degree in exercise science, has a personal training certification and is also a business owner, Jeff gives you the low down on whether or not he thinks his exercise science degree has been worth it in his career.

In this video, Jeff also starts the Sorta Healthy Personal Trainer Tier List where we will rate different certifications, programs and other personal training education. Watch the video to see where a degree in exercise science falls.

    Actually, learning a lot more on my kinesiology degree than on my NASM-CPT

  2. Oscar Penaloza on May 10, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    I’m certified with Nasm but am pursuing my degree in Kinesiology but I really want to focus on personal training but I also do want to work as a coach with more advanced athletes down the road. I want to run my own business as a trainer/coach though. Any advice?

    can i be an personal trainer and a pe teacher in the same time and what is required to reach this??

  4. Kristen on May 10, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Great video! I agree, but to be honest, I feel like I’m learning a ton more in my degree than I did in my CPT. However, you can definitely educate yourself more with tons of free online resources as a personal trainer if you are disciplined and passionate enough.

    I want to ask if what is a good pathway after graduating with an Exercise Science Degree, and also is the annual wage enough to sustain a family

  6. pbjfitness on May 10, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Would an exercise science degree be useful for someone who lives in an area where most, if not all gyms around you require that degree? Great video btw!

    ver good video, does this also apply to a sports studies degree?

    It’s all what you make of it! I know you are a LMT. Do you think the license in massage therapy was worth it?

    Here in the Philippines, I’m taking Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sports Science Major in Fitness and Sports Coaching.♥️

    Great video wow thank you

  11. Tatiane Wu li on May 10, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    And what about if I want to become a performance specialist or CEP? Can I follow a safer degree and then find time to study for the certificates

  12. Marie Sanders on May 10, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    It’s all what you know and also how you present the knowledge!

  13. Allison Chidley on May 10, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    I’ll be honest-when finding a trainer, I didn’t care much about the actual degree.

  14. fasil eyayu on May 10, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Education is pretty cheap here. I may as well get that degree. But the thing is should I go for masters degree(I’m about to finish a degree in other field so i can do my masters in exercise science. At least in my country)
