Why Study Exercise and Human Performance?

Knowledge and training in physical fitness and wellness can prepare you to play an important role in resolving some of the current health challenges facing our nation. Teaching others to maintain healthy levels of fitness and exercise can help them to lower their risk of developing diabetes and heart disease among other diseases currently on the rise in our population. Studies also show a correlation between practicing healthy levels of physical activity and maintaining good mental health. The AS in Human Performance Studies prepares you for transfer to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education, Exercise Science or other fitness/wellness related fields.
