A.S. Health & Fitness
Do you have a passion for healthy living and physical activity? Then why not promote public wellness and physical education by earning an A.S. in Health and Fitness. Small class sizes mean lots of hands-on, active learning with professors who take a personal interest in your well-being and success.
With a degree in Health and Fitness, you will be prepared to excel in the healthcare field at a hospital or corporate or private fitness industry.
The A.S. Health and Fitness degree is a two-year program aimed to help you get started in the health and fitness career field. Much like with a B.S. in Health and Fitness, you will be able to work as a personal trainer, wellness coach, fitness consultant, and athletic coach which involves working directly with individuals to help them to improve their physical fitness for health or athletic performance. Health club managers and fitness club owners are business-related positions in which the work is mostly administrative.
- According to the BLS, fitness trainers and instructors employment is projected to grow 13% between 2018-2028.
- As businesses, government, and insurance organizations continue to recognize the benefits of health and fitness programs for their employees, incentives to join gyms or other types of health clubs are expected to increase the need for fitness trainers and instructors.
