Fitness Certifications and Workshops

We host nationally-recognized fitness certifications and continuing education workshops each semester for both aspiring and experienced group fitness instructors and personal trainers. These events are open to the public. All events are held at the USA Student Recreation Center. 

Spinning® Continuing Education Courses

Profile Designs and Heart Rate Games (registration closed)

Date: Saturday,  January 7, 2023

Time: 8:00am-12:00pm

Cost: $109

CECs:  6 SPIN, 0.4 ACE, 4 AFAA

Description: Improve fitness by focusing on how the body responds to both rest and stress, as muscle cells rebuild to slightly higher levels after each cycle of effort and recovery. Enhance your training knowledge so you can help students achieve improved physiological adaptations. Learn new course designs, creative ideas, drills and techniques to use immediately in your Spinning® classes.

Creative Climbs (registration closed)

Date: Saturday, January 7, 2023

Time: 1:00-3:00pm

Cost: $60

CECs:  3 SPIN, 0.2 ACE, 2 AFAA

Description: While climbs can be among the most difficult elements of a ride, they can also be the most rewarding—there’s nothing quite like the feeling of reaching the top of a tough climb. Climbs are popular in the Spinning® program because participants love to feel the intensity of a heavily-loaded effort. This workshop will identify, detail and demonstrate several strategies for presenting efficient, safe and fun climbing activities in your classes. Although climbs are often performed in the Strength Energy Zone®, this is not an Energy-Zone specific workshop—the techniques discussed here can be applied across many class formats.
