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 Personal Trainer 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 personal trainers. Individuals wishing to become certified personal trainers must register separately for an ACE Group Fitness certification exam at www.acefitness.org.
