1. Anatomy and Physiology - Advanced: Gain A More In-depth Understanding Of The Human Body

Our Anatomy & Physiology course has been designed to provide a more in-depth understanding of the human body and the accompanying physiological process that allow for its optimal functioning.

As well as revisiting and expanding on some basic principles such as the skeletal and muscular system, this course provides detailed explanations of some more complex aspects of anatomy such as the heart, the brain and spinal cord and the autonomic nervous system.

This course also provides detailed aspects of a number of the physiological functions that occur in the human body.

2. Exercise Physiology: Gain Understanding Of How The Body Physiologically Responds

Coaches at International level are employing the services and skills of exercise physiologists (plus psychologists, nutritionists, etc.) in order to lessen the chances of failure and to ensure victory.

This course is designed to give therapists the knowledge and understanding of how the body physiologically responds to and adapts through physical exercise.

Training principles will be re-visited and applied to fitness testing and evaluation. The therapist will be capable of assessing present physiological levels and plan appropriate programmes.

Case study reviews will be used throughout the course, bringing together a number of coaching issues such as injury assessment, diet & nutrition, competition and peaking.

3. Fitness Management: Learn How To Develop A Balanced Fitness Programme

If you are keen on sports or general fitness, then this is the course for you as we teach you to understand what fitness really is, and it enables you to develop a balanced fitness programme for yourself or for your clients.
