Experiential learning is an integral part of this program. The program features three unpaid internship placements. Two take place on campus and the third takes place off campus. During the on-campus internships, students provide fitness assessments and testing, physical activity counselling and prescription services to Humber and partnership employees as part of the Humber Centre for Healthy Living (Humber CHL). Students have the opportunity to run workshops for the Humber CHL and its partners, as well as providing healthy tips and videos for the Humber CHL website. Throughout the on-campus internship, students participate in seminars with their professors and classmates to critically analyze their experiences and develop the skills required for professional work.
The final work placement is a four-week block placement off campus with one of Humber’s industry partners.
Students benefit from two dedicated fitness assessment laboratories, a private personal training studio, and two fully equipped group exercise studios. All of these facilities combined ensure a high-quality learning environment.
All students will receive hands-on experience in our on-campus Humber Centre for Healthy Living. Drawing on the expertise of the Faculty of Health Sciences & Wellness' faculty and students, the CHL offers a range of programs, services, and events for the Humber community.
Humber maintains strong partnerships within the community - and is the preferred choice by many agencies and facilities due to the outstanding reputation of the Faculty of Health Sciences & Wellness.

Health and fitness clubs represent just one category of employer where students can expect to find a job as a fitness appraiser, personal trainer, wellness specialist, program director or club manager. The growth of the fitness business over the past few decades, and the regulation of kinesiology as a health-care profession, has created demand for qualified professionals in a variety of settings.
In addition to private and commercial facilities, graduates may work in:
