    I emailed you roughly two months ago but did not get a reply.

    Any advice?

    Thank you for your time.
    What email addy did you try to reach me at? I'm in the process of changing my current one because it's too easy for people to mess up.

I love both training and nutrition but, I'm leaning more towards nutrition now as a major .Should I just double major or what? Read your blogs and loves them.
    It really depends on what you want your day-to-day work to consist of. There really are no positions where your job is 50/50 in terms of nutritional counseling & hands-on training. You have to literally pick a focus that interests you more.

    For example, say I just stick with exercise physiology as a major and nutrition as a minor. What about clients wanting to eat right and workout? With a degree in nutrition ,would this help against clients who filed a lawsuit saying I didn't know what I was talking about and gave them bad supplements or diet plans etc?..

    As long as you keep away from attempting to treat clinical conditions & stick to the basics of improving bodycomp or training performance, then you're in the clear. People aren't quick to sue their trainers, and I've known scores of trainers who give ALL KINDS of nutritional advice. I'm not condoning the indiscriminate practicing of unqualified nutritional counseling, nor am I saying that it's free of legal risk. However, I can say that in my 15 years in this business, I've never heard of a single case where a client sued a trainer for dangerous dietary advice. There have been cases where people have had possible drug-stimulant interactions that have lead to lawsuits, but I think you'll have a better chance of winning the lottery & getting struck by lightning in the same day if you stick to basic nutritional advice for the purposes I listed previously.

    Great post! I am so glad I read it. I had a tough time deciding between nutrition or training.
    My true passion lies in nutrition I must say
    I hope you don't mind me asking, but what is your average monthly income?
    I'm curious because I am interested in taking my dietetics course, but don't want to invest in something I can't make a decent living on.

    I'm sure he makes enough to be happy on, but he does a ton of writing/seminars as well as research for various sites I believe.

    I initially went to school for nutrition/exercise science, then changed paths and did nursing school. That was 14 years ago. I've been working ER/ICU since. Great day job, consistent pay, but I'm pretty burned out.

    I was considering going back to finish ES/Nutrition, but I almost feel it would be better to get a degree in biochemistry and avoid all the bull**** spew of old school nutrition dogma. Just my opinion, but it seems many of today's RD's are clueless when it comes to real world nutrition and how it relates to athletes, Alan being one of the exceptions. In a perfect world, an education in biochemistry and endocrinology would be the most interesting.

    I've read all your journal reviews Alan. Good stuff.

    I make enough to support a stay-at-home wife & 2 kids. I have multiple income streams, so the amount I make is more than the typical nutritionist or personal trainer. I make the majority of my income from writing. To give you a rough breakdown, here are my income sources along with their proportional contribution to the total monthly:

    Monthly research review (AARR): 40%
    Client counseling: 20%
    Book sales: 20%
    Men's Health magazine/article writing & consulting: 20%

    One thing I'd note is that when I first started out, it was 100% client counseling income for a long while, and the proportions have shifted over recent years. The magazine, book, & research review income kicked in within the last 3 years or so. I've found that it's optimal to be diversified in your income streams - not only for financial security, but it also keeps things interesting & prevents burnout.

    You're in a good/secure position to be in, but I've also heard a number of burn-out complaints from clients of mine who are in nursing. Perhaps write an e-book on how to get a 6-pack in 60 minutes? Glad you like AARR, by the way.

    I wrote one on how to do it in 10 minutes. Much more marketable. Selling like friggin HOTCAKES (low carb, of course).

    Very insightfull!

    Thanks for such a great view of how your journey into the fitness world has created the success you now have today. As an exercise science undergrad, with a growing interest in nutrition, it is nice to hear about others experiences and opinions on some of the many different career paths available in the health and fitness field!

    By this, I'm talking about how some gyms advocate high-pressure selling (also called hard selling).

    I have been doing undercover work interviewing at tons of gyms in the area getting information.

    Gyms won't give out their tier system or pay scale to just anyone...

    I loved reading that!

    Thank you. Best info I have ever read

    You really inspire me!
    I have complete control over my body. What I eat and what I do reflect that. Nobody can stop my progress. I will continue my progress until my goals are met. Then from there I will need to achieve new goals to keep the forward progression of my mind, body, and soul. I motivate myself every day to work out, eat healthy, and live my life to the fullest.
