Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:
You will get hands-on experience as a fitness professional through two unpaid work placements occurring in your third and fourth semester.
Your first work placement takes place on campus where you will perform fitness appraisals and conduct weekly personal training sessions for an assigned client as part of the Humber Centre for Healthy Living (CHL). Along with personal training, students also provide fitness and exercise tips as content for the Humber CHL website.
Your second work placement takes place off campus, two days per week for 14 weeks (180 hours total) at a fitness facility in a municipal, commercial, private or corporate setting.
Students benefit from two exercise physiology/fitness assessment labs, a dedicated biomechanics lab, and changerooms specifically for students in the program. All of these facilities combined ensure a high-quality learning environment.

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.
Each year we offer a variety of experiential learning trip opportunities for students to study abroad. Our annual short duration experiential trips in May are approximately two weeks in length. These faculty-lead study abroad trips are confirmed in the fall semester.
Qualified students in this program may apply to participate in a ten day experiential learning trip including one week at IMG Sport Academy, Florida and an experience with the Dunedin Blue Jays.
Students are also eligible to undertake a study abroad service learning trip to contribute to a global community. Past service learning trips have included locations such as Nunavut where students led community-based programs focused on wellness, recreation and learning and included the opportunity to explore and experience the culture and nature of this region of Canada.
These trips vary each year and are subject to availability and eligibility requirements. Additional fees apply.
Employment of fitness trainers/instructors continues to rise. With increasing awareness in chronic disease prevention and keeping fit for life, this field has career sustainability.
Graduates will be on their way to opening their own business or fitness franchise or to take on employment in a fitness club, community centre, resort, day camp or cruise ship, among other opportunities.
Potential jobs include:
Whether you choose corporate, municipal or self-employment, you will hit the ground running as you prepare to plan, market and deliver safe and effective fitness, wellness and healthy lifestyle programs.
