You can work in both medical and fitness settings. In a medical setting, you might use your background to conduct wellness/fitness tests (i.e. during a patient's annual physical, sit-up tests, cardiovascular testing, EKG, blood pressure). In a fitness setting, one might focus on personal training opportunities.

Hi Alexandra -

There is a vast amount of jobs in this field of study that you wouldn't typically think of. For example, Nike has a research lab that employees a large amount of kinesiologists that help with understanding how product can make ones performance better. Research in the field of kinesiology may be the most fun position you could find in the field verses just going into the medical field. Hope this helps a little.

I studied kinesiology and I now work at Medtronic. Medtronic employs tons of people with a kinesiology degree, and the degree itself gives you a great understanding of the body, and allows you to take an approach to medical devices that engineers may not.
