Ever wonder how your muscles contract to create movement during exercise or how the heart pumps blood to all parts of your body? Do you know how to eat for peak performance or how the body adapts to aerobic or resistance exercise? In this course students learn answers to these questions plus so much more. This course takes a systems approach with emphasis on the muscular, nervous, metabolic, and respiratory systems. Instruction is provided using screen casts along with section quizzes. There are over 40 lessons and 3 + hours of content. This course will benefit those studying for fitness certification exams or general fitness enthusiasts wanting to learn more about how the body works. If you are a student currently taking a university course in Exercise Physiology and can't grasp the material--this course will definitely help.

Who this course is for:
  • Those looking to pass fitness certification exams (ACE, ACSM, NSCA etc..)
  • Students enrolled (or soon to be) in an Exercise Physiology course at a university
  • Fitness enthusiasts wanting to learn more about the body and how to train optimally
