HEALTH & FITNESS LEADERSHIP
The Health and Fitness Leadership program blends a liberal arts education with a specialized study of exercise science and human movement. Students explore opportunities to develop knowledge and skills, learn from experienced health and fitness professionals, and challenge their individual potential as they prepare for a career in the exercise science arena.
The curriculum offers a balance between scientific theory and practical application. The program includes the study of human anatomy and physiology, sports nutrition, training and conditioning, health promotion, and exercise physiology. Graduates of the program are also eligible to sit for a national exam offered by the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Council on Strength and Fitness, American Council on Exercise, and the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Sheridan College’s Fitness Center provides a great opportunity for hands-on laboratory experiences and internship work. Students will also have the opportunity to develop their strength and conditioning skills by using the variety of equipment available.
Members of the faculty include certified personal trainers, group fitness instructors, and healthy lifestyle coaches – all with varied experiences and backgrounds. Health and fitness is their passion and they are excited to have you join their family! Let Sheridan College help you become a leader in health and fitness!
