Athletics and exercise science Study Programs

Level: Undergraduate Bachelors     Location: Madrid

Since the dawn of education various universities and educational institutions prided themselves in academic excellence, meaning that students are required to perform according to their perspective schools’ intellectual academic standards. But with the inevitable arrival of sports which has almost taken over the subject when there is talk regarding school spirit schools have undoubtedly succumbed to the prospect of lowering their standards when accepting students with regards to their mental capacities. Sadly, it is a known fact that most quite a number of career athletes aren’t exactly known for their mental brilliance but fortunately studies and various psychology departments from renowned universities fought for the accepted fact that brilliance is relative. Think of it this way, has anyone ever tried to make a Math genius run for 20 laps in an Olympic oval? Ergo is the birth of courses regarding Athletics and Exercise Science; preserved solely for athletes who are unable to cope with other available college courses.

The mindset of people regarding the course and its students make it much worse. Since the perception is concluded to the fact that most of the people in the course doesn’t even need to finish their studies due to the option of the students becoming professional athletes. As short sighted as the course seems, there is however a variety of options available for such graduates apart from turning “pro”. An option would be to become a spots trainer, specifically the job entails training private clients for personal fitness or for a certain sport. Sticking to this particular path may get you the opportunity to get up close to your favorite professional athletes. Since they, hire professional trainers to keep their bodies in shape during the off season.

Another would be to become a sports physician, although additional training in this area is advisable. The course of sports science commonly includes the study the functions and requirements of the bones, muscles and joints.

A different option for those with entrepreneurial ambitions would be to set up fitness centers. Whether it be a gym or a spa, a degree in fitness science would be perfectly suitable in such a business. These options maybe the only available ventures if one decided to stick with their line of study.

However turning into a professional athlete after graduation may just give you the edge you need. One thing; no one plays the game forever. The statement comes naturally due to the aging process and most athletes usually decide to hang up their guns before their fortieth birthday. So why not stick to the game you love and become a coach? Not only will you get to share your experiences with the younger generation, the prestige alone of the position is enough to make anyone stay in the game. But of course one has to be careful because there is a saying in the world of sports; players win the game and the coaches lose it. But then again if one fouls up in the field all one has to do is to look around and see who the audience is booing.
