The Industry in a Growing Profession:
The Sport and Fitness Industry has experienced dramatic growth over the past twenty years. The need for expertise in sport and Exercise Science has grown into a discipline where specialization exists in a multidimensional sense in the various areas of business, communications, and health-related areas. Professional positions in this exciting area require that persons are trained and qualified in many areas such as programming, marketing, management, communications, facility development, finance, economics, politics, and legal aspects. Indeed, the days are long gone where positions are filled by happenstance or by virtue of simply liking sport and fitness.
