Why do I need knowledge of many aspects of the human body?

The human body is complex. You require extensive knowledge of how the human body’s cells, tissues, organs, and systems work together to achieve an optimal state of health. You’ll learn aspects of anatomy, cellular biology, and how the body uses nutrients as part of your education as an exercise, nutrition, and health promotion specialist. 

Why are communication and marketing important for health and wellness?

Communication is one key to helping someone achieve their fitness and nutrition goals. You need to analyze someone’s individual situation and effectively communicate how they need to proceed. 

Beyond individuals you help one-on-one, you must market yourself as an expert in your field of personal training, exercise, and nutrition. This is where the “promotion” part of “health promotion” comes into play. You’ll gain knowledge about how to market your services to your target audience, either through online resources or more traditional methods.

Why should I study varied fields for an exercise degree?

Exercise, nutrition, and health promotion specialists cover several different yet interconnected fields. Anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, nutrition, cooking, and food safety all come into play for nutrition in the human body. Then you have communication, writing, public speaking, and understanding current research in your field.
