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 Training certification exam. This 10-week course provides curriculum and materials consisting of PowerPoint presentations, lectures, interactive group activities, and practical programming/training.
