Hello smart people,

I am gonna be studying for my NASM personal trainer certification in the fall and will be taking a science class at college as well. Which science class would help me best for the NASM certification? Biology, Chemistry, or Physics?

Please dont laugh at me :-(

Try to see if they offer a physics without calc. That is what I took at UF and it was great. I wanna say it is along the line of PHY2404C at UF anyway Anatomy, physiology, or biomechanics are all also good courses, but like it was said before Biomechanics is not exactly an intro course. I would go with anatomy in the end due to the fact that just memorizing the bones and muscles along with insert and origins will help you greatly getting your PT certification
