    Kinesiology is NOT an easy major… give credit when credit is due.

  2. Loncey elie on November 21, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    It was 10min 😂😂😂😂

  3. Doug Diamond on November 21, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    I’m interested because the knowledge gained would be useful AF. You have only one body, so it would be a good idea to know how to take care of it. I have tight hips and once in a while my back goes out really bad. I have physical jobs and it costs me a lot. I want to learn how to fix myself and show others how to do this he same. The physical pain and financial hardship is too costly not to.

  4. Zubair Ahsan on November 21, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Thanks alot man probably the most helpful video on YouTube in my opinion

  5. Nathan Yan on November 21, 2020 at 9:22 pm

    I am going to learn this major by English as a second language, none confidence left after seeing this video Lol~

  6. patience shema on November 21, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    i’m a high school student in ottawa and i want to be a gym teacher what program should i apply to?

  7. private penguin on November 21, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    I just started colleges I was majoring in biology. I started off strong but then slowly went down hill. I didn’t like it at all. So I panicked and decided to switch majors to ex science because AMP is a really fun class to me learning about and its more hands on then biology major tbh. I still wanna be a doctor so i hope i do well in this new major.

  8. Jack H on November 21, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    good vid bro. im ex sci major graduating next semester. i hate when ppl say ex sci. is easy major too lol i put lot of time and dedication on my upper div course like anatomy, ex phys, biomech,. anyways i really loved my major and learned alot from it. my next step is grad school 🙂

  9. Tom Herbert on November 21, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Would this be a good stepping stone for becoming a dietician?

  10. Queen Sugah on November 21, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    My son is using thia degree to be a health and pe teacher

  11. Declan Higgins on November 21, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    So I’m a few months away from graduating with my PhD in kinesiology & im gonna have to disagree with your last few sentiments regarding jobs/stepping stone. I’ve had job offers with my bachelors coming out my butt. There’s over 4,000 jobs on indeed in my state with “exercise science” or “kinesiology” in the job description/title. You listed barely any of the jobs available with our degree. I think it’s very much an American thing but if you take your degree overseas, there’s even more jobs available. I understand what you mean in terms of it’s not exactly streamlined but there’s a plethora of different jobs available for just a bachelor in exercise science. The video is quite old so maybe it’s just times have changed as I was in my 3rd year when this video came out but it’s certainly very different now

  12. Justin Villani on November 21, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    Would this major be useful for med school? Or am I better off sticking to BIO with maybe some exercise science electives? Thanks

  13. John Knoblauch on November 21, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    What are your thoughts about exercise physiologists

  14. Lizbet Nuñez on November 21, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Did you have a job during college?

  15. Tina Lin on November 21, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    If I want to become a physical therapist in the future would it be better if I did a major in biology or exercise science?

  16. Cecilia Szymczak on November 21, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Okay so I’m about to start my first year and I want to major in exercise science. Ideally I’d like to be a wellness and fitness coordinator. Do you have to get the major in order to do it or is it just one of those jobs that you don’t really need the major?

  17. Tyler Forbes on November 21, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    So Tony, whats the update? What did you decide to do?

  18. Cameron Salehpour on November 21, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    lmao i was going to major in exercise science kin, but i switched into ATHLETIC trainer undergrad 😉

  19. joel franco on November 21, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Unless you’re a smooth fuckin talker or character it’s hard to do anything in this realm

  20. Goitsemang Mahlangu on November 21, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    Thank you soo much(from south africa)🇿🇦

  21. toniwebb92 on November 21, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    Thank you!

  22. keila brandon on November 21, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    Hard working*** I got As but I had to work and imply myself .

  23. Susan Dinelli on November 21, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    Honestly, I’m getting my undergrad in exercise science starting in the fall, I watched this video before enrolling, I fully know this is a stepping stone, I could be a personal trainer and self employed all the same without the degree. Luckily anything above a planet fitness/ymca in my area of NY requires you to have the bachelors which pay more and have job benefits ect. I feel I need the education, I feel we shouldn’t be able to do the things a trainer does to people’s bodies without a degree, I feel confident that I am future proofing my career by getting this degree. Going to orientation on wednesday, thanks for the video man xx

  24. Downhill D Miller on November 21, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    I graduated with my masters in exercise science in 2017 and finding any kind of suitable work with this degree is almost impossible. Even if you can find work, most jobs require a substantial amount of serving customers/clients/patients which is not my forte. My degree program was heavily focused on doing research, writing out reports, analyzing data, and doing presentations. I gained almost no practical skills outside of the research component. Since graduating, I have only been working jobs that require nothing more than a high school diploma and at or near minimum wage. I will be starting a masters in data science this fall. Hopefully, the advanced data analytic skills I will acquire from this degree program in combination with the fact that it is a quantitative/computer science related degree I will be able to land a data analyst job that will enable me to work towards becoming a data scientist.

  25. The Unknownbeing on November 21, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    It’s good knowledge to apply and pass on

  26. Childish_Dicaprio on November 21, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    1000% true. Just the degree alone is not worth it, unless you continue you on for a masters or doctoral degree. Most entry level exercise jobs doesnt even require a degree.

  27. Jae Ahn on November 21, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    what is the differences between Kinesiology, Exercise science, and Exercise physiology?

  28. Robert Booker on November 21, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    Great insights Tony thanks for the information. I’m an older guy pursuing a degree in Excercise Science and Fitness Management and this video gave me a lot to think about.

  29. Jatt Barn on November 21, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Can commerce student study and pass it,i mean if it requires good knowledge of physics chemistry math or not

  30. Derrick Leonard on November 21, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Good video. I’m a high school teacher trying to arrange a shadow day visit for a 12th grader interested in kinesiology. What specific type of professional in this field would you suggest I approach to inquire about a shadow visit?

  31. Michael Carnahan on November 21, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Thanks man! I’m studying Exercise Science this year at Ohio State… like you I am passionate about fitness, exercise, and health but don’t know what I want to do (career wise). I’d like to travel when I want to (not tied down to one place) and not be dependent on someone else (not tied down to one company) 🤔🤔 I’m thinking about doing research: do they have a career name for that?Thanks man, keep up the good work!!

  32. vincent xiong on November 21, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Hello, I am a pre-nursing student right now, and is taking courses for exercise science as a backup. But what I want to know is, what medical/healthcare field can I go to?


  33. Takumi Fujiwara on November 21, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    What are you doing now? How’s your life & where are you now?

  34. Nehemiah92 on November 21, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    I’m a random animation and motion graphics major here, drawing at 1am, watching this video… Learn something new each day 😇

  35. The Cheeba Lounge on November 21, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Thank you ! Idk shit about college so this helped lol👏🏽

  36. Ryan Minor on November 21, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    Would a masters in business be good to pair with this degree? I’m halfway through my E.S. degree and still have no clue what I’m going to do. Having second thoughts after watching this.

  37. josue Alberto on November 21, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    I’m a exercise major and one thing that I can tell you is that what ever degree you choose, don’t do it for a job. do you know what job stand for? JUST OVER BROKE! meaning that you will never make more than your boss. FUCK A JOB! do it because you have a passion in your health, fitness, or just knowing your own body and that information will open other doors on finding something you’ll enjoy doing . My plan is to have my own gym and be my own boss, I don’t plan to use my BS when i’m done with school but I love working out and if I love something, why not understand how to do it properly? After you graduate and obtain your degree, the degree is not gonna mean nothing, but what you got out of it is whats worth millions.

  38. Christopher Hernandez on November 21, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    majoring in kinesiology as well and it definitely isnt easy. going to start physiology this semester and my final semester at a community and transfer to a four year so im just getting started

  39. jdiesel1708 on November 21, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    What kind of camera are you using?

  40. Sara Farias on November 21, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    I am a senior majoring in exercise science. I am really struggling right now:(

  41. Doug2oo7 on November 21, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    I graduated with excise science not that long ago. I work as a rehab tech full time and work as fitness specialist at a fitness center part time. I agree with you 100%. I’m very passionate about it and would not change it. However, I agree it is a stepping stone degree. I wish I would have known that. I’m working towards my master’s degree in exercise science and want to do cardiac rehab. I didn’t have the grades for PT school. What are you doing now? Thanks for the video!

  42. Rey Vill on November 21, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    Im about to freshmen majoring in this. What kind of jobs can you get right out of the gate with a bachelors?

  43. AJ Rivera on November 21, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    thanks man this helped alot

  44. Shaun Borg on November 21, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Hey Tony, Thanks for answering my question bro. Really have been thinking about what future I want recently and the real reason I have come to this questioning is because of the constant hard work we put in, to try to help others in the fitness industry and the constant let downs from clients not showing to sessions from time to time. There are 100’s of students all competing towards the same goal realistically for 3 to 4 years and at the end of the day its a degree that just restricts you more then you could ever imagine once graduating. It’s great to know all this stuff but as a pt already, working towards a $40,000 debt and knowing you will have the same issues as a cert. 4 personal trainer has once spending 3 years for this major is a joke. Unless you direct yourself into the fields you spoke about in the video, and spend another 2-6 years completing a post graduate course. Then also to find out you still aren’t able to gain a stable career that you have worked so hard for. Love to hear your comments about your plans now and thanks for being so honest here for the world to see.
    Good luck with everything Tony, Peace.

  45. el lune on November 21, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    Hello Tony, what do you think about double majoring exercise science and health science. If I only did one major I would finish in 3 years and for both of them it would take me about 1 year to 1 year and a half extra. Keeping in mind that I plan to attend to graduate school to become a physical therapist. What do you think?

  46. Grass on November 21, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    Thank you so much for making this video. It’s very sweet of you to go out of your way to tell people about your experiences.

  47. Nand Sookhan on November 21, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    I’d like to know what college you went to

  48. lolo orellano on November 21, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    Hi! Such a very good video! It can be used to do an Athletic trainer master?

  49. Daniel Dalan on November 21, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    First year in community college, I’m on my way to major in kinesiology. I hope to one day understand the body in a way I never knew was possible. Also wanna minor in space science lol I know the two are almost not similar at all but it’s what I wanna do. Remember guys don’t think too hard on your choices, just follow your dreams and do whatever it takes!

  50. Kelly Chiang on November 21, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Thanks for sharing your experience. You don’t know how much it means for a first year going into kinesiology program.
    Q: what do you think about getting a kin diploma and becoming a rmt? I’m not really sure how it works but I was wondering if you know anything about massage therapy.
