  • The works in the application of exercise and physical activity for those clinical and pathological situations where it has been shown to provide therapeutic or functional benefit. Patients for whom services are appropriate may include, but are not limited to, those with cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, immunologic, inflammatory, orthopedic and neuromuscular diseases and conditions. This list will be modified as indication and procedures of application are further modified developed and matured. Furthermore, the clinical exercise physiologist applies exercise principles to groups such as geriatric, pediatric and obstetric populations, and to society as a whole in preventive activities. The clinical exercise physiologist performs exercise evaluation, exercise prescription, exercise supervision, exercise education and exercise outcome evaluation. The practice of clinical exercise physiologists should be restricted to clients who are referred by, and are under the continued care of a licensed physician.

    EXP 4431 - Advanced Exercise Physiology - 4 cr.
    Integration of undergraduate exercise physiology classroom and laboratory experiences to illustrate how the understanding of the physiology of exercise, sport, and physical activity is applied in real world settings within the scope of practice of an exercise physiologist. Laboratory sessions focus on physical/physiological measurement and evaluation techniques while the lecture portion is centered on applied exercise physiology topics and professional development.

  • At present, most states do not legally require a college degree or any type of certification in order to prescribe exercise but some state legislatures have recently proposed legislation to require personal trainers to obtain certification or have a degree in kinesiology. Many employers already require one or both. In general, reputable facilities hiring personal trainers or people to lead exercise classes require some sort of fitness leadership certification (see below). Although a bachelor’s degree may or may not be required for entry-level jobs, most jobs in fitness management, particularly in community and corporate settings, require a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in kinesiology or a related area is often helpful. In addition to coursework in exercise physiology and exercise prescription, other courses typically found in well-rounded kinesiology programs (e.g., exercise and sport psychology) are usually very helpful to those responsible for prescribing exercise to individuals. Business classes (e.g., management, organizational behavior) may also be beneficial to those wishing to advance to management positions. Finally, coursework specific to youth or the elderly should be taken if one plans to work with these populations. Although only Registered Dieticians can prescribe diets, nutrition courses are still very helpful for exercise professionals, whether working with athletes or those trying to lose or manage weight.
