3)  Sign-up For Individual Classes within each term

  •  (Anat I) Anatomy
  • (Anat II) Anatomy

This course offers an extensive look at the landmarks and responsibilities of the anatomical system.  The course focuses on the primary and secondary muscles in joint mobility and stability, along with the skeletal system’s role in stature, leverage and movement.  The identification of landmarks is an integral part of the curriculum, however, the course’s objectives are geared to integrate the system’s impacts on the physiological systems, posture and movement, metabolism, psychology, performance, rehabilitation and reconditioning, biomechanics, and exercise.

25-Hour Classes at $310.00 each

Monday Day 12-2:30pm

  • (Nutri I) Nutrition I
  • (Nutri II) Nutrition II

This course investigates the nutritional science and foundations of food and energy.  The course breaks down the raw science and investigation of nutrients.  We will discuss the psychological and societal impact on food choices, availability and perceptions.  We will address the energy balance and individual differences throughout human physiology, to help explain differences in metabolism, genetics, appearances, performance levels, weight management and disease prevention.

60 hours

20-Hour Classes at $248.00 each

Thursday Day 9:30-11:30am

  • (PD I) Program Design I
  • (PD II) Program Design II

This course gives structure to the programming and guidance in developing proper exercise and nutritional programs.  After creating a base and foundation, program designing is crucial in supporting realistic goal setting, establishing appropriate progressions, variability, safety and successful goal reaching.  The course is founded upon anatomical, physiological and nutritional sciences, as they are imperative in supporting the essential questions of training.

25-Hour Class at $310.00 each

Thursday Day 12-2:30pm

  • (P/MA I) Posture/Movement Analysis I
  • (P/MA II) Posture/Movement Analysis II

This course uses various tools to educate students on posture and movement such as posture charts, instructional videos from various experts including Grey Cook and Justin Price.  These instructional videos provide a framework in analyzing stance and gait patterns, which helps identify mobility or stability issues through the biomechanical system of the human body.  Identifying imbalances will help address alignment and movement technique in helping increase performance, sustain exercise, promote joint health, prevent or decrease joint pain and gain confidence.
