Ace your fitness certification exam…On The First Try!

How in the heck can you do that?

Well, you get ‘office hours’ with a college professor, that’s how!

This course is for you if…

1. You are a professional looking to pass a national certification exam (NSCA, ACSM, ACE, NASM etc…)
2. You are a CURRENT student thatAi??struggles to pass your exercise physiology tests.
3. You are a fitness enthusiast/athlete who wants to learn more about how the body responds to exercise.

So Who am I?

My name is JJ Mayo and Iai??i??m an endurance athlete, a sports science professor, and a registered dietitian.

For close to 20 years I’ve been a university professor (PhD in Exercise Physiology) teaching courses in fitness and nutrition.

I’ve helped literally thousands of students pass fitness certification exams (and I can help you too)!

I have publishedAi??~ 50Ai??articles on fitness andAi??nutrition-relatedAi??topics over the years in journals like Strength and Conditioning Research, Journal of Sports Physical Therapy and the International Dance and Exercise Association Journal (to name a few). Iai??i??ve also been quoted in magazines like Bicycling Magazine, Menai??i??s Health, and US Weekly.

I speak regularly on sports training and nutrition-related topics to triathlon & running clubs, as well as atAi??various professionalAi??conferences.

My athletic endeavors began in endurance sports. I’m sure many of you can relate to this asAi??I began running years ago to lose weight. At my heaviest IAi??weighed 200 pounds (yikes!).Ai??I amAi??nowAi??aAi??9x Ironman who alsoAi??has multiple ultramarathon finishes.Ai??In 2013, I qualifiedAi??for theAi??Boston Marathon.

Why I Developed This Course

I understand that:IMmarathon
1. exercise physiology is a large part of all fitness certification exams. To pass you gotta know your stuff!
2. many of us (including myself) are visual learners and need the content delivered in a video format.
3. we all need a brief refresher course, wallah here ya go.

In this course my goal is prepare you for the exercise physiology related questions on your exam. You will go into the exam moreAi??confidentAi??and with less stress and test anxiety.Ai??Ai??
