Which undergrad major would be best suited for a doctorate in physical therapy?

As I've been looking into more colleges for admissions, I've noticed that not all of them have either kinesiology or exercise science. After looking more into it, I can't decide whether exercise sciences or kinesiology would be better suited for my major to help get my doctorate.

Is a Fitness Coordinator basically a Physical Therapy equivalent without a Doctorate Degree?

I have been sold on Physical Therapy for a while now, but recently I have begun struggling with the idea of going to Medical School and all of the debt and excessive studying that entails. I took a career quiz and it recommended Fitness Coordinator rather than Physical Therapy. I love studying the human anatomy, working out, and helping others learn about their body, how it functions, and how to strengthen and enhance their performance. Would a Fitness Coordinator be the same thing as Physical Therapy, just without going to Medical School and getting a Doctorate? Also, what is the job satisfaction like for a Fitness Coordinator? What about the hours? work load? salary? work environment?
