Fitness Theory Course

The Fitness Theory Certification Course is the first step towards attaining Personal Training certification or Group Fitness certification.  It is the prerequisite to both the Weight Training Course and Group Fitness Course.  This course is held at the YWCA Health & Fitness Centre in downtown Vancouver.  Topics include anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, movement analysis, exercise technique, training principles, program planning, training for cardio, strength, endurance and flexibility, nutrition, weight management and safety.

This course is designed to appeal to different learning styles by incorporating lots of visual aids and fun activities. The workbook quizzes, activities, assignments and open book exam, all help to ensure success. And as the groups are never large, there is plenty of time for discussion and questions.
