About Chris Collora, M.S. | Founder of Exercise Science Guide

He holds bachelor and master of science degrees in exercise physiology (with clinical concentration) and is currently working towards medical school. His past job roles include working as a personal trainer (with ACSM HFI and NSCA CSCS certifications), health writer for LIVESTRONG.com, and cardiac rehabilitation specialist at major metropolitan hospitals. “As a student, mentorship is a crucial aspect of career planning and development.
