You are correct about our industry. There are many people who chose to get into this field without having much experience or enough knowledge to perform the job. They just get a couple of certifications and promote themselves as professionals and experts. I can tell form your question that you are really interested in learning the science behind the exercise and invest sometime in it. Getting a college decree in an exercise science related topic will give you a better understanding as to where you would like to concentrate the majority of your time. After the college degree you should seek a certification that will serve you the best. It can be in physical therapy, strength and conditioning, personal training, massage therapy, exercise physiology, athletic training, physical education, training seniors or in any other subject you are interested making a career in. You can even get a couple or more certifications (if that is what you would like to do) in order to be more marketable and keep learning as much as you can.
A college degree will give you the tools you’ll need in order to have a better understanding of exercise science and then a certification will help you accelerate your education and distinguish you in the specialty field which you are most interested at. Good luck to you.
