Resistance & Gym Supervision Online Course

Study to be a Gym Supervisor, or expand your skills as a Personal Trainer or Sports Coach

  • Learn how to manage strength training for athletes or anyone else interested in increasing their strength or mass.

Resistance training increases muscle strength by pitting the muscles against a weight, such as a dumbbell or barbell. The muscle cells adapt to the extra workload by enlarging (hypertrophy) and recruiting greater numbers of nerve cells to aid contraction. Understanding the principles of muscle contraction can help you reach your fitness goals faster. It is important to pay attention to safety and good form to reduce the risk of injury.
