To me an Athletic Trainer is someone that graduates from college certified to provide help to people that are injured, right out of college. This major can be obtained in four years without and further education, however; must take classes to keep up with the ever growing medical field. The main thing I think of when I think about going into Athletic Training is working at a school with the schools sports teams, however; they also can work in physical therapy clinics, hospital settings, nursing homes, etc. Athletic Trainers focus on prevention, treatment, what is wrong, and getting the patient back to health as well as working along side a doctor or physical therapist for further assistants.
In general, for my long-term goal is to help people and make them aware of how much nutrition and physical activity can make a big change in their life. My first goal is applying for the Internship within 2 years of graduating. After I complete my internship I will prepare for the exam by studying all my nutrition notes and books from school as well as all material from my internship. I will apply and take the national registered dietitian exam in order to be a practicing Registered Dietitian.
When I first began college I was unsure of what career path I wanted to pursue, but I knew whatever I chose would lead me to a challenging and rewarding career. My first semester I enrolled as a biology major because of my interest in science and desire to work within the health care field. This same semester I also happened to be taking a nutrition class as apart of my general education, and I was introduced to the science of nutrition. As the semester progressed my passion for nutrition grew, while the feelings of uncertainty I had about my future career path began to dissolve. I was drawn to nutrition once I began learning about the effect that food has on our health, and realized I could help people suffering from diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease, which are so prevalent today. I knew that choosing to major in dietetics was going to require an immense amount of hard work and dedication, but I decided to accept the challenge and pursue a career in dietetics.
I see myself going in many different directions, but how I get there is pretty clear. I am going to Iowa State University and major in Agricultural Business for the first four years after high school. I plan to maintain my high marks in college as I did in high school. During college I hope to take on internships at businesses that I may have a possible career at. One of my main goals when looking for a career after college is to find a job that is both challenging and allows me to make the biggest impact on agriculture I am capable of. It is important to me to do something that I love because that is how I know I will reach my greatest potential. While I may not know what the future holds for me and my career, I do know that I will be making positive influence on the world of agriculture and the lives around
Ever since I was a child, I enjoyed watching and doing athletic activities. I played softball throughout middle school but stopped once I got to high school. I realized that even though I didn’t want to play as much anymore, I still wanted to be involved with athletics. I began managing my high schools girls and eventually boys’ basketball team. By doing so led me to the career I want to partake in for the rest of my life. I want to become an Athletic Trainer. What motivate me to become an Athletic Trainer are the different aspects of the job. I also have a lot of friends and family members who are athletes and I love the different personalities that come with the athletes. I am also motivated to this career, because I want to be able to prevent athletes’ injuries, assist, and aid the athletes’ to enhance their performance so that they can continue to do what they love and to overall get stronger.
Nutrition is an important complement of any physical fitness program. The main dietary goal for active individual is to obtain adequate nutrition to optimize health and fitness or sports performance.
As we begin to grow up and come to the end of our high school career we must start to begin to start thinking about what type of career we want to be in. It is very important that a person picks the right type of career for them. Otherwise you will be unhappy with what you are doing and will not enjoy it at all. I am not entirely sure what I want my career to be but I have a pretty good idea as to what type of job it will be. I would like to go into the field of a physical therapist and sports medicine, I fell I will enjoy this more than any other type of career just because I already have a lot of interest in it.
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” I believe an Athletic trainer is a very wise and reasonable job selection. It's a career I'd enjoy doing which is good. I feel as if I'd do good in that career because it's something I show interest in. Without interest in a job it becomes boring, I wouldn't wanna spend every day of my life at something I don't like.
A Career in Athletic Training and a Careers in Recreational Therapy are very different from each other.

I grew up most off my life watching basketball and at 18 years old I started working for the Jacksonville Jaguars so I’ve seen some of my favorite players and not so favorite players in basketball and football get injured on television and up close and personal. When I seen Derrick Rose get injured the first time it broke my heart. That is how attached I was to the game and players. I seen how exercise science played a big part in his return to the game. I knew at that very moment that I wanted to be someone who could help athletes get back to their full capabilities through Physical Therapy. I could have majored in another aspect of health to become a Physical Therapist but I know that exercise science impacts athletes a lot and my love of sports and athletes impact

The sprinters have been training their entire lives for the opportunity at hand, and the outcome of the most important event of their lives is going to come down to mere milliseconds.

Supplements have emerged as a way for athletes to increase their performance, yet their use is very controversial. Supplements, varying from simple multivitamins to complex chemical supplements, are used by almost every athlete, whether recreational or professional,
From a young age, I have always wanted to know how and why the things around me work. Science was one of my more well-liked subjects throughout my schooling years. I am able to excel in these subjects because I have developed a strong interest in them and I enjoy the process of learning new things. I have always wanted to go to university to study a science-based subject. While browsing through the variety of courses available in your university, I came across "Food Science" and it caught my attention. That was when I knew it would be the right course for me.
