Online Certificate in Women's Exercise Training and Wellness

The Online Professional Certificate in Women's Exercise Training and Wellness is an interactive Web-based Certificate program designed to ensure the development of safe and effective exercise programs for women by personal trainers, allied health/medical and fitness professionals, and the general public.

This noncredit program prepares students for a career working with women of all ages at medically-based fitness facilities, YMCA/JCCs, community wellness programs, personal training studios, physical therapy clinics, health promotion sites, corporate sites, and private and commercial health clubs. Students will learn how to apply their client's health history, goals, and abilities, integrating exercise science curriculum and practical training techniques into a systematic model that teaches students to progress their clients through various phases of a woman's life. In addition, female health and exercise enthusiasts of all ages seeking to stay current with information to design personalized exercise programs specific to a women's needs and concerns would benefit from this program as well.

The program is offered in partnership with the Women's Health Foundation and Healthy Moms® Fitness, allowing graduating certificate students a preferred discount on both the Women's Health Foundation Total Control™ and Healthy Moms® Perinatal Fitness Instructor Certification Exams and study materials.
