A Bachelor of Science degree in strength and conditioning consists of a pre-professional and a professional phase of an academic and practical experience-based curriculum. In addition to undergraduate study, many strength and conditioning students also pursue graduate study in athletic training or physical therapy

The field of strength and conditioning is a highly respected profession.  Strength coaches, performance enhancement coaches and other area specialists are required to possess a wide range of skills and talents. Many NCAA strength training facilities, health clubs, corporate fitness centers, therapy clinics, as well as companies such as Disney, Cirque de Soleil, NYC Ballet, NASCAR and many more, hire strength and conditioning specialists. A working professional relationship with physical therapists, athletic trainers, physicians, exercise physiologists, biomechanists and sport coaches is common. ​
