Applied Health Sciences
Exercise science is needed more than ever in this world. Why? One word: prevention! Exercise physiologists should be focused on informing/guiding others (clients and patients) about health and well-being so they can avoid injury and sickness. They should be focused on helping with preventable visits to the physical therapist and doctors.
What would you tell a student about why your field is exciting/important/the potential impact s/he could make?
I see the role of the exercise physiologist as one of foresight, not hindsight. Guiding, leading, and teaching others the methods to stay healthy and happy.
