    The High-Intensity Workouts for Women CE Course is one of few continuing education courses that houses a collection of science-based HIIT protocols in one place and addresses the training needs and goals of women who want results and progressively more challenging workouts. You will learn how and why HIIT works, how to set up a HIIT workout, and the rationale behind recommended ratios of rest and recovery. Dozens of exercises and 19 complete workouts provide an exercise experience that incinerates fat, shapes and strengthens the lower and upper body, and builds core strength. Variations for exercises as well as ways to incorporate tools and toys such as kettlebells, resistance bands, sliding discs, and trampoline ensure that your clients will benefit from customized workouts that address their needs and help them reach their fitness goals.

    The course includes access to an online video library of more than 30 clips that demonstrate key dynamic exercises from the book The HIIT Advantage: High-Intensity Workouts for Women and videos of exercise demonstrations that show how to put these exercises together for maximum results. The 30-minute streaming video offers a complete, ready-made workout to illustrate proper technique and program design.

    The study guide contains a course syllabus, chapter objectives, and end-of-chapter learning activities to prepare you for the 50-question continuing education exam at the conclusion of the course.
