Do you love physical fitness but are not sure what career path to choose?

Our talented professors are passionate about this field of study. From advising and assisting you with your classes, to serving as mentors in your graduate school or career pursuit, your professors are your allies from day one.

A textbook can give you the fundamentals behind how and why the body moves during certain exercises, but at Olivet, you’ll see those principles come to life! Your professors will encourage you to think critically while witnessing firsthand the mechanics behind human performance.
