The mission of the Exercise Physiology pathway is to provide a career/college ready education for students pursuing a kinesiology, medical, or athletic training degree. Due to increased costs in the healthcare market, more emphasis has been placed on preventative and rehabilitative care to reduce health concerns. The growth rate of personal trainers is at 7% with an annual 81.1 billion market. Students will explore the science of human health through designing a systems approach to exercise and conditioning. Students will learn fitness training assessments which will include programs such as resistance training, body fat/weight loss, nutrition, and agility. This course embeds a fourth science requirement for graduation and Board of Regents admission requirements for college. Students in the program have the opportunity to earn dual enrollment credit and a personal fitness certification to jump-start their career.
