What You Will Learn In The Classroom

The Fitness and Health Program at Medix College provides training for individuals looking for a rewarding career working as fitness and health professionals. The program is designed to educate students in the anatomy and physiology of all body systems, exercise prescription, fitness assessment, motivational techniques, business management, biomechanics, nutrition and much more. As society begins to emphasize personal health, the occupations and roles in this field will continue to increase.
