About the Virtual Certified Personal Trainer Preparation Workshop Series (CPT Prep):

At CSUSB Student Recreation & Wellness Center (SRWC), our purpose is to educate and facilitate a learning environment that will prepare aspiring fitness professionals to pass the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) Certified Personal Trainer Exam.

Some of our learning outcomes are listed below:

  • Participants will be able to competently apply the theoretical and applied knowledge concepts that are required of an NSCA-CPT.
  • Participants will gain experience programming for a client one-on-one for several weeks; which will assist them in developing the soft skills necessary to being a successful personal trainer.
  • Participants will gain knowledge of using the virtual personal training platform, PT HUB.
