Become a Personal Trainer
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 10-week course that will prepare you to become a nationally certified personal trainer. 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 also serves as a prerequisite for working as a personal trainer at Rec Sports, if you do not currently hold a national certification.
Tuesdays, September 8–December 1, 3–6pm, Boilermaker Room.
Registration opens July 1, 2015
Course Instruction is free; however, you are required to purchase ACE Personal Training Essentials and ACE Personal Training Manual 5th edition prior to the first day of class.
This course requires a substantial time commitment from all participants, equivalent to a three credit academic class. Participants are advised to be mindful of other commitments when registering for the course.
You must attend 90% of the class or more to be eligible for an exam discount and potential employment
