Our free Group Exercise Mentorship Program is for students interested in becoming a fitness instructor. This program is based off the ACE Group Fitness Instructor certification and gives you a chance to work one-on-one with a current instructor to learn the skills and knowledge you need to be a great Group Ex instructor!

Personal Training Prep Course

For students interested in personal training and want to pursue a career in personal training, we offer an “Personal Training Prep Course” that would prepare you to take a personal training certification exam of your course. This course is a 3 day program held the end of the Summer semester, and end of the Fall semester. This course is of no cost to you and it supplies you with all the necessary knowledge you need to successfully prepare for the exam. On the last day of the course you are given an exit exam and if passed you are offered a chance to become a personal trainer at Rec Sports to gain experience for your personal training career.
