UREC is proud to host nationally accredited certifications in a variety of areas including group fitness and personal training. Special interest classes and programs are also offered periodically throughout the year.

This course is designed to prepare individuals to take the ACE Group Fitness certification exam. This 8-week course provides curriculum and materials consisting of PowerPoint presentations, lectures, interactive group activities, and practical programming/training. The Prep Course does not certify individuals as group fitness instructors. Individuals wishing to become a certified group fitness instructor must register separately for an ACE Group Fintess certification exam at www.acefitness.org.
