Athletic training combines the love of sports medicine as well as the science of exercise. The study of athletic training can lead to a career as a certified athletic trainer. Athletic training is not the same thing as personal training. Certified athletic trainers work in universities, high schools, professional sports, clinics, hospitals, performing arts, the military and other settings. The majority of certified athletic trainers go on to pursue a graduate degree.
