Im an 18 year old senior right now in study and I was giving advise to a friend who recently started working out. He told me I should go into a field in working out becuase for an 18 year old I know a lot about working out. Im curious does any one know about a job where I could acually have fun in the work place instead of hoping for a friday to roll around so I dont have to be at work for the weekend.
This might be a stupid post but I was just curious to see what people think.

Im in the same place as you are and have been giving a lot of though about pursuing an athletic/exercise minded career path (Also thinking Criminal Justice)
If I do go into the atheltic field I plan on going to school for exercise science/sport training and work my way up to hopefully a sports trainer or even if I could reach it a professional trainer for a pro sports team. There are a lot of options out there just gotta find the right one.
Are you looking for something from college or are you more interested in a job out of high school?

Guys, I'll tell you right now. If you want to go into something where you can guarantee not only a VERY high paying career, but also job security until the day you die, find a good sales company with a good product. That was the best decision I ever made. I was 19, going to community college part-time, not really knowing what I wanted to do and I fell into an inside-sales opportunity and I never looked back. If you're a hard worker, you can work your tail off for 7-10 years and retire. Just my 2 cents....

You have to do something you enjoy and will keep you financially satisfied. You may end up doing good in the health and fitness industry but it takes time and people skills. JMO, but weekends are over-rated. Don't go into a career just because you'll get weekends off.

I read an article today about a University of Richmond English graduate. He hated business and thought it was dry. He liked literature and writing and so that's what he majored in (regardless of what kind of salary he'd get leaving college). He just sold a company to yahoo for 270 million dollars.
Do what you love and the rest will come easy.
