You definitely should not go to college to work at a gym. There are certification courses that the gym usually will pay for as long as you agree to work for them for a certain period of time. The courses aren't very expensive... More

Unfortunately, you absolutely need to go to college now, no matter the profession you intend to go into. The thing is, almost everyone your age goes to college now, so when the gym owner has a choice of two equal candidates, but one went to college, that's who they will choose. It lends credibility and prestige to the... More
