WHAT IS IT?
A three-day certification workshop including lectures, practical demonstrations and written and practical exams.

The curriculum includes:

  • Anatomy and kinesiology
  • Fitness assessment testing procedures (3-minute Step test, sit-and-reach, push-up, abdominal crunch, body composition screening with skin-fold caliper measurement)
  • Nutrition fundamentals and weight management
  • Special populations and medical considerations
  • Listening, leadership and motivational skills
  • Exercise programming in the weight room
  • Wellness programming and screening guidelines
WHO IS IT FOR?

For the aspiring and experienced fitness professional working one-on-one with exercise clients.

  • Early registration and pre-study is required.
  • Weightroom/weight training experience is strongly recommended.
