Foundations in physical activity and exercise course


The Fitness Alberta foundations in physical activity and exercise course (formerly exercise theory course) covers basic fitness principles such as anatomy, physiology, movement mechanics, training and conditioning, nutrition and leadership. Foundations in Physical Activity and Exercise is a 24-hour course and prerequisite to all other Fitness Alberta® certification courses. 

We offer this course through distance education and in-person. The distance course is designed to allow participants to work through independent study and on their own time. There are specific start and end times for the course, which consists of synchronous sessions, plus independent study over two months. The distance course is taught by a qualified Fitness Alberta® Trainer-educator, who will provide oversight, answer questions and feedback on all assignments.  The in-person course is delivered by certified Fitness Alberta® trainer-educators at approved agencies across Alberta. Choose the option that works best for you!
