I am new to the industry and have recently discovered my love and passion for fitness and nutrition over the last couple of years. I have a bachelor’s degree with a major in sociology and a minor in psychology, and I currently work in retail.. but now I want to head in the direction of fitness, nutrition, and wellness. After researching, there seems to be so many options for certifications, I don’t know where to begin! What is the most accredited online certification program for nutrition and wellness? So far I have looked at ACE, NASM, AFPA, and Institute for Integrative Nutrition (which cost a lot more than the others and takes more time, but may be worth it?) I would love all the advice I can get!
I know I am late as well but I have a few questions. I’m currently getting my Bachelor degree in health and wellness. What are my career options with a 4 year degree? I am not interested in the fitness, mostly coaching or assisting in healthy eating and nutrition. Any ideas? I would love to branch out on my own but would like a clinical setting first. Possibly a hospital or outpatient center. Thanks
