A degree in physical education will teach you to lead, instruct, and motivate individuals or groups in exercise activities, including cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and stretching. Physical educators work in health clubs, country clubs, hospitals, universities, yoga and Pilates studios, resorts, and clients' homes. Fitness workers can also work for unrelated companies, organizing and directing health and fitness programs for employees. Although gyms and health clubs offer a variety of exercise activities, such as weight lifting, yoga, cardiovascular training, and karate, fitness workers typically specialize in only a few areas.
