Module 1 – Essentials of Exercise Science
Are you confident in your understanding of the key science concepts and principles that form the foundation for exercise program assessment and design? More than 90% of the questions on the ACE Personal Trainer Exam require foundational science knowledge. If you’re asked to give examples of exercises that occur in the sagittal plane, are you lost? Do you know why diastolic blood pressure is unchanged or decreases slightly during exercise? Can you design an exercise program for fat loss taking into account relevant energy systems and fuel utilization? Can you explain basic nutritional concepts to clients concerned about long-term weight management? And can you tell clients what is actually taking place in their bodies during an individual workout, from the onset of exercise to the recovery period?
The Essentials of Exercise Science Module of the ACE Personal Trainer Exam Review Online Course helps you master the foundational science of personal training. It is impossible to develop a safe and effective exercise program without truly understanding the body’s response to various forms of exercise. In addition, a well-designed resistance-training program depends on a thorough understanding of not only how to target certain muscle groups, but also of how the muscles respond to the various types of demands placed on them. The following topics are covered in this module:
- Human Anatomy
- Exercise Physiology
- Fundamentals of Applied Kinesiology
- Physiology of Training
*Note: ACE-certified professionals who hold a certification other than Personal Trainer or Advanced Health & Fitness Specialist and successfully complete this course will earn 0.5 Continuing Education Credits (CECs).
