With the Sports Fitness and Exercise Science program, students are prepared for careers in health-fitness

The Sports Fitness and Exercise Science program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in any of the four health-fitness settings: clinical, commercial, community or corporate. This program includes everything from the study of the body’s responses to physical exercise to treating bodily injuries and diseases.

Students will learn scientifically based methods and apply the material with hands-on experiences. This program prepares students to take the certification exams offered by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and the American Medical Certification Association to become certified as a personal trainer and a certified physical therapy aide.

Completion of the Sports fitness and Exercise Science program may act as a stepping stone to prepare students for undergraduate education in athletic training, exercise physiology/science, physical therapy, sports nutrition, sports medicine, biomechanics, and other allied health disciplines.
