However the company is perhaps not as well known in the UK and Europe for its range of online courses as it is in The USA and Canada, where sales of courses almost rival those of its books.
In August 2013 Human Kinetics acquired Desert Southwest Fitness, itself a leader in online fitness education with over 150 print and digital continuing education courses and materials.
The combined portfolio of products now ranges from introductory courses costing less than £60 that teach how to run classes on subjects such as women’s fitness, yoga and strength training, to courses for professionals looking to extend their knowledge.
They can also be used by lecturers as part of their courses, providing turnkey solutions for a single lecture to a complete course module.
Many of these courses carry accreditation from leading bodies such as the US National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
In all there are over 150 courses to choose from covering the following subject areas:
• Athletic Trainers
• Fitness Professionals
• Swimming Instructors
• PE Teachers
• University/College Faculty
• University/College Students
Active Living and Healthy Eating
• Active Living
• Healthy Eating
Details of all online courses are available in our 2014 Fitness Catalogue. Download it here >>
