Exercise Science

CGCC’s Health & Exercise Science program studies human movement and the physiological adaptations, ranging from aspects of physical activity for healthy lifestyles to exercise training for sport performance. Highly qualified faculty help students achieve educational and career goals. The program includes the fitness center and activity classes, as well as health and exercise science lecture and lab courses.
Students have the opportunity to pursue an AAS or a CCL certificate. The exercise science and personal training degrees prepare students for employment as a personal trainer in the fitness industry. The certificate option is designed to prepare graduates for certification and employment in the health and fitness fields. The associate degree builds on the certificate and focuses on transfer to a four-year bachelor’s degree program.
