This intensive, 6-month diploma program will give you a competitive advantage as you learn the real-world concepts of personal training and exercise science. Each week, students will explore a wide range of topics, intentionally geared to spark critical thinking, creativity and a deep understanding of exercise physiology. This is not a weekend crash course folks! This is a detailed and comprehensive program that many compare to a university kinesiology program. Classes range from 8-15 students and take place in a modern classroom and an expansive state of the art functional gym! We have sleds, squat racks, TRX and so much more. Consider this your “home away from home” as you and your fellow classmates (led by instructors Conor and Brittainy) delve into the fundamentals of Personal Training and apply these concepts in a safe and practical way. We are partnered with the National Academy of Sports medicine and provide all of your course materials, including your NASM CPT Exam, CPR/AED Training and gym membership.
