I am an aspiring fitness instructor and currently am weighing options such as going back to school for a Masters, going to a community college for an Associate, going to a school such as Lifetime Academy, or attempting a combination of self-education, apprenticeship, internship, conferences, online courses, etc. In any case, I’d like to self-study a bit beforehand. What are considered the best science-based kinesiology textbooks in the industry?
Secondly, has anyone gone through a Master’s program in Kinesiology when their undergrad and/or previous graduate degrees were completely unrelated? What would you recommend to prepare?
Just wanted to add to Karin’s response that Gil recently put them all online on his youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/somanaut for free. The 4 volume DVD is $159.80 so this is incredibly generous of him. It is well worth watching.
