Exercise Science Salary in Connecticut - CT

Exercise science salaries in Connecticut vary depending on the type of job, additional education or certification, the geographic area, and experience. The more education, experience, and specialization a person has, the higher the salary. In addition, salaries in larger cities tend to be higher, although that may be mitigated somewhat if the cost of living is also higher. There are likely to be more job opportunities as well as more variety of jobs in larger cities and metropolitan areas. The southwestern portion of Connecticut is considered part of the New York metropolitan area and most of the state’s population is included in the Tri-State area of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

In a comparison of salaries for three different careers (fitness instructors, exercise physiologists, and personal trainers) that exercise science graduates commonly pursue, the salaries for fitness instructors tend to be lower than those of exercise physiologists and personal trainers within the same geographic area. The salaries of exercise physiologists are the highest of the three, according to information for several Connecticut cities provided by Indeed.com are listed below.
