Students examine evidence-based approaches to corrective exercise and gain skills needed to develop and implement integrated strategies to improve common movement impairments.

Students who successfully complete the certificate are prepared for the Corrective Exercise Specialist credentialing examination offered by the National Academy of Sport Medicine.

To be eligible for this certificate, students must complete the Personal Fitness Trainer or Group Fitness Instructor certificate from Cincinnati State, or have a current nationally-accredited certificate in either Personal Training or Group Fitness.
