Interval Training for Fitness and Endurance Performance: Theory and Practice

Get Started Now

About The Course

This course, designed for personal trainers and allied-health professionals, builds a solid scientific foundation about interval training methods. Topics are grouped into three sections: interval training origins and practices, important interval training variables and their effects, and practical guidelines for designing an interval training prescription for the beginner to serious athlete. Emphasis is on how to design an "ideal" program that considers age, gender, prior and current exercise and training status, and goals. A must-have course to master the latest advancements about interval training for success.

Features online enrollment, online exam and instant grading.

"Interval training" has become one of those phrases that has taken on a life of its own in the fitness and training industry, along with others like "fat burning" and "heart rate training." The internet, for example, is full of half-baked interval training schemes and ?creative science? regarding the physiological mechanisms underlying this method of training. Unfortunately, scientifically based, but practical information sources on interval training are in short supply.

In this CEU, I will try to build a solid foundation that you can use as you incorporate interval training methods into your practice. Like most topics, we have more to learn about interval training. But, if you read, study, and think about the material to come, you will know far more than most!

Good luck,
