HPA Core Modules

Complete Human Performance and Human Performance Analytics present HPA: CORE, an educational offering unlike any other currently aimed at fitness professionals, coaches, and training enthusiasts of all sorts.

CORE starts with the basic science: Biomechanics, biology, statistics, chemistry, then builds on earlier lessons to dig into the intricacies of exercise selection, progression, programming, nutrition, and sports psychology.  The objective of this course is to elevate the standard of knowledge in this field, to ensure that every graduate has the tools available to critically evaluate information, to read and understand current literature, and contribute to the field.

Bridging the gap between university level learning and accessible continuing education/certification level learning for current professionals, the CORE course is intended to be both accessible and useful to all level of students, containing both fundamentals and immediately actionable lessons that will improve your fitness practice.
