Online Personal Trainer Certification Programs

Enriching the lives of others through caring and service.

Personal training is all about helping people set and reach their health and fitness milestones. When someone seeks guidance from a personal trainer, they may be aiming to improve their general fitness, to reduce pain, to improve mobility and quality of life, or to lose weight. Nearly every gym has a very specific qualification that any personal trainer must have before they can interact with clients: certification with a recognized agency. Two of the most well-known and recognized ones are NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) and AFAA (Athletics and Fitness Association of America). Our Personal Trainer Certification Programs at Fitness CEUs are approved by these organizations. You can rest assured that our courses meet and exceed the industry standards to prepare you in helping your clients achieve their goals safely.

Why is Core Training important?

The core protects your central nervous system, supports your internal organs, and helps circulate blood and lymphatic fluid throughout the body. It is the link between the upper and lower body and consists of many parts and layers that make the “power house” of stability and safety. Your core houses the vital organs and is responsible for many key functions that are essential to maintaining optimal health. It is important for personal trainers and other fitness professionals to understand the principles of core training to be able to design an integrated training program properly.

Course Topics:

  • Introduction
  • What Does the Core Do?
  • Functional Movement Tests
  • Strengthen the Core
  • Quiz

Why is Posture and Movement Assessment important?

Proper postural alignment allows your nervous system and musculature system to communicate properly to help produce effective and safe movement. It will help keep muscles at their proper length and ensure proper joint motion while reducing the risk of injury. Proper posture also helps the body produce high levels of functional strength. Without it, the body may degenerate or experience poor posture and other dysfunctions that can lead to common injuries, such as ankle sprains and lower back pain. It is important for personal trainers and other fitness professionals to understand the principles of posture and maintaining structural efficiency in order to design an integrated training program properly.

Course Topics:

  • Introduction
  • Importance of Posture
  • Static Postural Assessment
  • Dynamic Postural Assessment
  • Performance Assessment
  • Course Summary
  • Quiz

Why is Flexibility Training important?

Nearly everyone is plagued by postural imbalances largely as the result of sedentary lifestyles, advancements in technology, and repetitive movements. Office jobs that require individuals to sit for long hours have led to dramatic increases in work-related injuries, including low-back and neck pain and carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as increased rates of obesity. Clients without adequate levels of flexibility and joint motion may be at increased risk of injury and may not be able to achieve their personal fitness goals until these deficits are corrected. It is important for personal trainers to understand the principles of flexibility training to be able to design an integrated training program properly.

Course Topics:

  • Introduction
  • What is Flexibility?
  • Planes of Motion
  • Human Movement System
  • Muscle Imbalance
  • Neuromuscular Efficiency & Mechanoreceptors
  • Scientific Rationale for Flexibility Training
  • Flexibility Continuum

Why is Cardiorespiratory Training important?

The Cardiorespiratory Training Concepts Course focuses on the cardiorespiratory system, which is comprised of the cardiovascular and the respiratory systems. Together, they provide the tissues of the kinetic chain with oxygen (O2), nutrients, protective agents and a means to remove waste byproducts. The human movement system (also known as the kinetic chain) is the primary system for movement production and is under control of the nervous system. In order to maintain a constant state of efficient operation, it needs to have a support system. One such support system is the cardiorespiratory system.

Course Topics:

  • Introduction
  • Cardiorespiratory System
  • Cardiorespiratory Fitness
  • Cardiorespiratory Fitness Training Phases
  • FITTE Principle
  • Cardiorespiratory Training, Energy and Fat Reduction
  • Cardiorespiratory Training Methods
  • Postural Considerations
  • Exercise vs. Physical Activity

Why is Balance Training important?

Having great balance means that you have a strong core and good flexibility. This provides optimal sports performance enhancement, injury prevention, and quality of life. The main goal of balance training is to continually increase the client’s awareness of his/her limit of stability (i.e. kinesthetic awareness). As a personal trainer, it is up to you to provide controlled instability, which is a training environment that is unstable as safely can be and is controlled by your client.

Course Topics:

  • Introduction
  • The Science Behind Balance Training
  • Balance and Injury
  • Importance of Properly Training the Balance System
  • Designing a Balance Training Program
  • Planning Your Client’s Workout
