Personal Trainer Certification

At Smart Fitness University you'll receive 10 different interactive training modules with over 20 hours of video footage along with a personal trainer text book to help you prepare for your nationally accredited exam. Each module is presented by a leading expert in their field. After viewing each section, there is a quiz to help you review the vast amount of information included in this state-of-the art platform. This feature allows you to interact with each module which in turn helps you retain the subject matter.

The modules are:

  • Definition of a Personal Trainer
  • Exercise physiology
  • Nutrition
  • Flexibility
  • Special populations
  • Anatomical Terms
  • Anatomy
  • Exercise application

You can review the materials or videos as much as you want. Anytime you finish a section you're able to retake the quiz as well. The system keeps track of where you are in the material and will also provide you a report as to your standing.

This program is one of its kind. You'll receive both the academic information as well as the practical application to become a successful personal trainer!
