The BHA difference: learn by doing
Our Personal Trainer / Sports Science Program, like all other programs at BHA, is hands-on. This means you will graduate with practical, real-world knowledge that you can put to immediate use. You will achieve this through a combination of lectures and intensive hands-on training, meant to demonstrate and reinforce what you are taught in class. This hands-on approach is just one of the things that sets BHA apart from other schools. At BHA, we teach what works!
