We train and educate those interested in entering the profession of a Personal Fitness Trainer.

Through a balanced format of instruction in the areas of exercise science, exercise physiology, and fitness and exercise testing, as well as instruction emphasizing “hands-on” instruction by qualified faculty in a collaborative environment.

Our Mission

The objective of the Exercise Science Program is to produce Personal Trainers who are knowledgeable in both the concepts of fitness and health as well as skilled in the application of training methods on a healthy individual.

The Exercise Science Program offers an educational avenue for individuals interested in a career in the fitness industry as a personal fitness trainer. The program offers a curriculum that integrates practical learning skills with current exercise related principles such that the graduate can enter the workforce as an employee with the practical, educational and interpersonal skills needed to function as a personal fitness trainer. The program also provides the opportunity for professional development, general public education, and preparation for national exams offered through ACE, NSCA, and ACSM.


The program also incorporates material specific to national certification preparation for exams such as those offered by the American College of Sports Medicine (C-PT), National Strength and Conditioning Association (C-PT) and the American Council on Exercise (PT).
