Description:This online College Certificate provides students with comprehensive training in strength and conditioning, a rapidly growing and emergent field of health and fitness. The key focus is on developing and designing protocols and guidelines for efficient and productive programs for athletes of varying abilities and ages with an emphasis on broad-based, balanced muscle development and comprehensive, sport-specific strength-training. Students gain in-depth strength and conditioning knowledge and skills built on the six core training phases: anatomical adaptation, hypertrophy, maximum strength, specific strength, maintenance and tapering to integrate with energy system training to develop stronger athletes.

Targeted at industry professionals in fitness, corporate fitness, health and wellness, and recreational team coaching, students may expand existing knowledge and abilities, increase their career opportunities, and integrate contemporary trends and best practices in strength and conditioning.
