Message from the Dean
Dear Prospective Student,
Thank you for your interest in our Advanced Personal Training Program.
The personal trainer's calling is to find an exercise regimen that not only suits a client's needs and preferences, but that will also be safe and effective. Our unique program offers a science-based approach for choosing the best possible tools and techniques for creating customized programs for those seeking increased levels of fitness and wellbeing. With organizations like Exercise is Medicine and Physical Education for Life being formed, it is clear that people are seeking prevention and health maintenance and want fitness experts that can help them achieve it.
Our rigorous and exciting curriculum is filled with experiential learning and combines a strong foundation in science and anatomy with extensive hands-on application and skill development. The courses offer training to those looking to enter the fitness field, experienced trainers seeking higher levels of knowledge, skills and abilities, massage therapists and other healthcare practitioners looking to expand their practices, and those interested in learning about fitness, exercise and the human body.
We help our students to become independent thinkers who will be knowledgeable in the most current fitness guidelines, have an understanding of state-of-the-art techniques and be able to evaluate new trends and research. Our students learn to design and implement comprehensive and sophisticated programs of health, wellness and performance. We strive to instill a love of knowledge in our students so they become lifelong learners with the skills for success in a wide variety of fitness settings.
I invite you to audit one of our classes and/or visit our facility to gain a better understanding of our program. To schedule an appointment, please call our Admissions Department.
