Hands-On Training

The in-gym/practical component of our curriculum is an invaluable learning experience for our students. You'll design and implement a wide variety of exercise programs based on real-world case scenarios, be taught new exercises and workout techniques and understand how to incorporate a variety of tools and techniques into your programming.

The practical takes place at Health360 for students enrolled at the Cleveland campus (Health 360 is approximately one mile from campus), while Columbus students use the school's own on-site facility. (Click here to see photos of the Columbus campus facility).
