The ACE (American Council on Exercise) Personal Training Preparation course is designed for people who aspire to become a certified Personal Trainer. This course has been developed with both lecture and practical components, to give you the knowledge and hands-on experience that will enable you to become a fitness professional. Topics include: basic and functional anatomy, applied exercise physiology, client consultations/assessments, program design principles, resistance training, cardiovascular training, form and technique instruction, and more!

Current FAU students who successfully complete the course will have the opportunity to apply to our Personal Training program and participate in our interview process. Any student hired through this preparation course will have one semester to take and pass a nationally accredited Personal Training certification.

The Personal Training Prep Course is not designed to serve as a sole means of studying for a certification - it is meant to be a supplement. Please note that this course does not actually certify you as an ACE Personal Trainer, in order to sit for the exam you would need to register for the exam through the ACE webiste (Enrolled participants will also receive 20% off the costs for the ACE CPT Exam).
