  •  This course is ideal for personal trainers and fitness professionals looking to expanding their teaching expertise into the youth fitness and exercise field.

    Based on the Youth Fitness book and ACE’s Guide to Youth Fitness video, this course explores common misconceptions regarding youth strength training and provides research-based responses to each. Throughout the teaching and programming sections, the focus remains on the two most important aspects of a youth fitness program: safety and fun.

    Written by Avery D. Faigenbaum, Ed.D, and Wayne L. Westcott, Ph.D., Youth Fitness serves as an excellent foundation for anyone interested in expanding their teaching expertise concerning this population.

    The 45-minute video offers a sample youth training program, featuring safety tips as well as ideas for involving young participants in program design.

    Upon completion of this course, you will have an understanding of the benefits of physical activity for youth and the current statistics associated with a lack of physical activity. You should also be able to provide safe and effective strength, flexibility, and endurance programs appropriate for this age group.

    Found this course to be helpful, and pick up where the personal training and group fitness books stop.
