salary survey for exercise physiologist

3 Answers | Asked by Tami Brzozowski on Aug 06, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 06, 2013

Hi Tami, I assume that you want to know which salary you can expect with a degree in exercise physiology. Unfortunately, there are so many factors involved that there is probably not one answer. Geography plays a role, but so do your other qualifications and the competitiveness of the market. ...

Is IFA certification is good to get online?

4 Answers | Asked by AMIT MEHRA on Aug 05, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 06, 2013

10 Answers | Asked by Melissa Sigler on Aug 05, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 05, 2013

2 Answers | Asked by Matthew Wellersdick on Aug 02, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 02, 2013

Hi Matthew, in the infancy of IDEA FitnessConnect, it was possible to write in a certification organization that was not listed. I saw that this is no longer the case. I would contact IDEA directly and ask about the process. Ideally, you want the organization to become a verification partner s...

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 02, 2013

Hi Lori, I found that the type a music that the client enjoys can be of help. I have used it in pacing movement in a client with Parkinson's. All of a sudden, some movements were possible that before were just labored. I teach a water aerobics class in which I use classical music which has bee...
