    Health and Fitness Promotion Major

    Ill be starting my Health and Fitness Promotion major this fall at UNI, and I was wondering if any of you had this major and what kinds of jobs are available.

    1) I didn't realize this was a UNI board

    2) Wouldn't you want to find out what jobs are available before picking your major?


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Since it is a health and fitness promotion major I would assume that you are going to take over for Jack Lalanne.

    My apologies. I didn't realize i can't ask questions. If you don't want to get annoyed or waste your time then don't post.

    Re: Health and Fitness Promotion Major

    My sister in law graduated with that degree. Being brutally honest here and spending money on that particular college degree isn't a sound financial investment. She wound up going to Hawkeye CC and getting a degree in CNC machining after spending a couple years looking for a job. Now she doesn't use either degree and works at transamerica proofreading insurance policies.

    Re: Health and Fitness Promotion Major

    As I see it, you have 3 possibilities.

    1. Work as an agent for pro athletes, making a lot of money.
    2. Work at a gym.
    3. Do something completely unrelated to fitness promotion.

    Re: Health and Fitness Promotion Major

    Had several work study students work for me while getting this degree, not a single one of them ever used it. Basically told me their options for jobs were:

    -Running a fitness center
    -Being a personal trainer
    -Trying to get into the corporate world as a health coach, etc. to work with the companies employees to make them healthier
    -Go to grad school

    Re: Health and Fitness Promotion Major

    Think about getting a business degree and minoring in Health and Fitness. Don't want to discourage you in anyway, but it will give you more options if you don't end up liking that business. Also, will help you run a small business, or move up in MGMNT. Just a thought.
