Why study anatomy & physiology?

Learn about the structure and function of the human body

A solid understanding of the anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) of the human body is essential to further study in the health, performance, and nutrition sciences. It's also critical for existing practitioners (trainers, coaches, nutritionists etc) to be current with their knowledge of the human body. No matter whether you are aiming for future study, to be a better coach or practitioner, or simply are passionate about knowing more about the human body to help you achieve your health and performance goals, this accelerated learning program will set you on the right track!
