Adult Workouts | Personal Training Experience
This program was developed as a win-win for the Cheyenne home school parents and/or LCCC employees and our Exercise Science majors, who are learning the process of fitness program development and implementation.
Participants in this course experience a five-phase project (which begins about three weeks into the semester) in which students assume the role of a personal trainer under the supervision and guidance of the Exercise Science faculty. A summary of the phases and time commitment for each phase is outlined below.
Phase I - The Interview: Client Pre-Screening and SMART Goal Identification (~1 hour)
Phase II - Fitness Assessments (1 hour to 90 minutes OR spread out over two class sessions)
Phase III - Assessment Results Discussion and Nutrition Review (1 hour)
Phase IV - Program Consultation and First Training Session (~1 hour to 90 minutes OR spread out over two class sessions)
Phase V - Training Sessions (30 minutes to 1 hour each week for the remainder of the semester)
The class meets on Fridays from 9 - 11 a.m. in the RAC building.
To participate as a volunteer in this program, we ask that you commit the requisite time for each of the five phases as described above. You will be working with our Exercise Science faculty as well as our second year Exercise Science majors.
Students in the program will provide a fitness assessment and then develop a program that is tailored toward your fitness and wellness goals. At the end of the semester, you can choose to perform a post-assessment to evaluate areas of progress as well as those areas that need further attention.
