Short Description: This program is designed for any individual who has zero experience in fitness training but wants to become a professional personal fitness trainer. However, people who do have experience in fitness training can use this program to prepare themselves for the ACSM certification.
In this multimedia-rich program, you’ll learn the fundamentals of the following topics.
• Exercise physiology
• Anatomy
• Biomechanics
• Nutrition
• Motor learning
That is not the full extent of this interactive program. You will also learn how to:
• assess a client’s strength, risk, and flexibility
• establish goals for them
• develop training programs for cardiorespiratory, resistance, and flexibility
With this program, you can become a professional personal fitness trainer, and, thus, put your knowledge on physiology, fitness, kinesiology, cardiology, epidemiology, and pulmonary medicine to good use.
If you want to be successful in this field, you cannot rely on the skills and knowledge required of trainers only. That is why this program includes detailed instructions on how you can start a personal fitness business of your own. Also, this program incorporates the Co-Active Coaching Model, which will help develop communication and relationship-building skills.
You’ll also receive an exam voucher and preparation book for the Certified Personal Trainer certification by ACSM. You can also request an alternative certification track through NASM or ACE.

Instructor Description: Though this program is a self-paced program it is supported by an educational mentor. Educational mentors are subject matter experts who have years of experience in their field as well as the necessary educational training and credentials to work as an expert. The mentor is available to answer any questions a learner may have including questions on course content, course material, certifications, and even industry questions. Mentors also monitor the progress of learners to ensure training retention and program advancement. In eLearning, motivation is a key tool to success. Because of this, mentors provide encouraging comments, feedback, and coaching to motivate learners throughout the duration of the program to support completion and success!
