Module 1: Foundational Knowledge: Applied Science
Are you confident in your understanding of the key science concepts and principles that form the foundation for exercise program assessment and design? Over 90% of the questions in the Personal Trainer Exam require foundational science knowledge. If you’re asked to give examples of exercises which 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?
The Foundational Knowledge: Applied Science Module of the ACE Personal Trainer Exam Review Course helps you prepare to take the ACE Personal Trainer Certification Exam by helping you master the necessary information and theories of foundational science for personal training.
The goal of this module for the Exam Review Course is to enable you to analyze complex problems and determine the best solution to challenges dealing with exercise physiology, kinesiology, elementary biomechanics, anatomy, motor learning and control, nutrition and healthy eating, weight management, stress management, and basic behavioral sciences. You will review applications of the following knowledge areas: cardiorespiratory physiology, metabolism, general physiology, the musculoskeletal system and principles of mechanics and physics as they relate to personal training.
During the course you will listen to lectures, complete fill-in-the-blank exercises and take interactive quizzes. Once purchased, you have access to the online course for six months.
*Note: ACE-certified professionals who hold a certification other than Personal Trainer and successfully complete this course will earn .2 Continuing Education Credits (CECs).
