My name is Nicholas Paicos. I studied exercise science at Ithaca College and just recently earned my CSCS certification. I am writing to seek advice on how I break into the field of strength and conditioning. I would very much like to be a collegiate strength and conditioning coach. Any ideas or advice anyone can offer would be much appretiated. Thank you.
I am also planning on graduate school in the near future and am wondering what the best program options are. I was thinking of strength and conditioning or exercise physiology. Does anyone have any advice in this regard. Thank you.
To break into the field of collegiate strength & conditioning, I would recommend getting your MS.
I would try to apply for a GA position as a strength & conditioning coach at a college. You get wtrm experience and tuition covered. Plus it will teach you how to network within the industry.
