Health/fitness is one of the fastest growing industries in the
country. Employment in this area is expected to continue to expand in
the next ten years and beyond. A degree in health and wellness
management prepares graduates to sit for any nationally accredited
certification exam required for personal trainers and/or group
fitness instructors. The curriculum utilizes certification materials
from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) for personal
training and the American Council on Exercise (ACE) for group fitness
instructors. The program not only provides a solid knowledge base in
anatomy, exercise science and kinesiology, but also offers many
hands-on experiences designed to enhance each student's practical
skills.

Personal trainers work one-on-one or in small groups with their
clients in a variety of settings including: health/fitness
facilities, training studios, schools, athletic clubs, YMCA's, park
districts, and clients' homes. Group fitness instructors design and
lead safe, effective workouts accommodating the needs of larger
groups of people. Students wanting to focus on improving their skills
in this area may opt to obtain the Group Fitness Professional
Vocational Specialist Certificate.
