Students in our Exercise Physiology degree program at Eastern Illinois University have flexibility in their course work to prepare for careers in scientifically based exercise programs with an emphasis on cardiac rehabilitation and adult fitness or personal training and strength and conditioning. We are proud to be able to offer preparation for certification through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
The program focuses on scholarship through critical evaluation of related research and a knowledge of professional standards. The Exercise Physiology program provides meaningful hands-on experience as students spend a significant amount of time working with staff and participants in two ongoing year-round community adult exercise initiatives: the EIU Adult Fitness Program and the Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program.
