"The interaction with the trainers is a real education both from their technical expertise and listening to their life experiences. All of the trainers I have had were very knowledgeable about muscle groups and functions of the body." -Participant (10+ years)
“HOPE is a great way to provide guidance to adults who want to exercise but aren’t sure how to go about it. At the same time, it gives students a chance to practice their training skills and also become better communicators." -Dr. Brady (Program Director)
"I didn't think I was interested in working with older adults at first. But now I'd rather work with them than other groups of people. They're really willing to listen and they want to get better." -Former student trainer
The HOPE program strives to stay up to date on current research and best practices with regards to exercise. Our fitness programming follows the guidelines set forth by the American College of Sports Medicine, a global leader in sports medicine and exercise science.
