TST BOCES is excited to be offering a new educational opportunity for the 2017-2018 school year as the Career and Tech Center introduces the Exercise Science program. This new program is open to students entering their junior or senior year of high school, and would be a great choice for any students interested in pursuing a career in the field of athletic health or for anyone looking for a different type of class than they might be used to.

This new CTE course will provide students with a foundation to pursue post-secondary degrees and professional certifications in the athletic and health-related fields.  The course will explore the science of human health through designing a systematic approach to exercise and conditioning.  Students will learn the parameters of fitness training including: resistance training, aerobic and anaerobic training, body fat loss and musculoskeletal gain, nutrition, flexibility and mobility, agility, and more.  Exercise Science students will design, implement, modify, track and update personal fitness training programs based on individual needs and goals.
