Harris is spot on.
Fitness has many aspects and many opportunities. It is a crowded field, but if you educate and train yourself well, and try to find the place in it that best matches your skills and interests you can do well.
Talk to the people at your school. Typically a college or university will have people to give guidance on career paths. Hopefully your school will also offer opportunities for internships and work study. These can be very helpful.
You might also consider joining IDEA. The IDEA journal is a great source of articles and information on a lot of topics within fitness.
Read articles in your local, regional, and national news…. and follow up by looking deeper into things that interest you. You never know when a chance mention can lead you to a place that will become a life long interest.
A general fitness certification can be helpful, but a degree first will give you much more of an idea of where you want to go, and will give you a lot of professional credibility.
Good luck in all.
