ACE Personal Training Prep Course
If you are passionate about pursuing a career in health and fitness, a personal training certification is a great step towards meeting that goal. As a personal trainer, you serve as a coach, mentor, confidant and motivator, and have a significant impact on the lives of your clients.
Our ACE Personal Training Prep Course is an intensive 12-week course that will prepare you to become a nationally certified personal trainer. This course also serves as a prerequisite for working as a personal trainer at Rec Sports, if you do not currently hold a national certification.
This course is offered every Fall Semester.
Course Instruction is free; however, fees for ACE course materials will be required.
The Personal Training Prep Course is a comprehensive certification training program through the American Council of Exercise. The course will provide extensive training on essential fitness subjects, including anatomy and exercise physiology, fitness assessment, program design, special populations, liability and risk management, and communication.
This course requires a substantial time commitment from all participants. The Personal Training Prep Course does not provide academic credit, however, the workload is equivalent to a 3 credit academic course. Participants are advised to be mindful of other commitments when registering for the course.
