This sites good, but try to hit up some clinics. Just call schools to see if they need help. Like I said prepare to work for free.

Hey Jeff, thanks for the input. Yeah I know its different from personal training, which is why I've been trying to get my CSCS, and researching that, NASM PES, and CSCCA as well but I've taken the CSCS twice already. I'm hoping to use this site as well as Facebook, to try and network with other strength coaches as best I can and try to see what's out there.

First things first, you are going to have to intern, or volunteer. Working in the field of strength and conditioning is different then personal training. It is a demanding field that's hard to get into. So you also need to get out and network with other strength coaches, the more people you know the better chances of getting into the field. Yes you are going to have to get your cscs or look into getting the cscca cert it is excepted in the field as well.

I wanted to see if I could get some people's advice from here, and any thoughts would help. Currently I'm working as a personal trainer at a YMCA. I am looking to break into the Strength and Conditioning Field, the problems I am having are, I don't have a Master's Degree, only a Bachelors in Sports Management, and I've taken my CSCS twice and missed both times and planning on taking it again in January. I was giving some thought to looking into schools with Masters programs in Kiniesiology but I'm not really sure what a Masters in that entails. I also know there are a lot of companies out there that require the CSCS as far as Parisi, Velocity, and Athletes Performance.
Also, I've been looking for some places to start shooting some vids for Youtube, just to put my name out there as a trainer, but I'm having a hard time finding locations to do so. Any thoughts or places to begin looking specifically entry level would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
