After losing 100 lbs and developing a passion for life-changing fitness and wellness, I would like to pursue a career in fitness where I can help others change their lives, too. I would like to write about fitness (I currently write for a fitness blog for college students), be a group fitness instructor (and maybe someday a personal trainer!), and/or work with a non-profit dedicated to wellness. I already have an advanced degree, but not in this field at all! Is going back to school for exercise science the best way to go? Or is it possible to build experience without a formal degree? I want to make a difference but I’m not sure where to start!
Wonderful answers. You can help people every day, just by showing them that being fit is a part of your life. It’s not talk, it’s just doing. You have accomplished an amazing goal, share with others your triumphs, your struggles, and your continued challenges. More people than you can imagine share your hope.
