Personal Training, Health Sciences and Myology
Get an insider’s perspective on how the body functions for your aspiring athlete through this 30 week combined Personal Training, Health Sciences and Myology course. (Myology is the study of the function, structure and action of the muscles.) We all know that to become a better athlete requires practice. Just like a good engineer can up the production of a machine with the use of science, an athlete can become a faster runner, increase endurance, lift heavier, strike harder, and swim faster by understanding better how the muscles of the body work. During the span of this 30 week 1 ½ hour course, students will develop a working knowledge of the human body and exercise physiology; fitness screening; health assessment and injury prevention; and the basics of nutrition and weight management.
Students will need to bring their own yoga/stretching mat.
