High School P.E. Teachers: Motivate, Educate, Activate Your Grades 10-12 Students

Looking for up-to-date programs that will interest your Grade 10 to 12 students? CFES fitness leadership courses and resources are for you and your students!

CFES Fitness Leadership Program modules are designed to take students through the steps and standards for fitness instructor and personal trainer certification. The course modules also work great in high schools for students who are looking for practical life-skills and leadership training, credits towards graduation and, for some, as a work bridge into the fitness industry.

Courses are easy to set up and very popular with teens today and are ideal for students who are looking for: practical living skill knowledge and leadership training; credits towards graduation; a bridge of learning before entering (related) advanced education (e.g. Kinesiology, P.E. diploma or degree); part time employment in the health/fitness/recreation/coaching fields; or as the first step towards a full time career in the fitness industry.

All course modules -- the CFES Fitness Knowledge Course, Aquafit Instructor Course, Group Exercise Instructor Course, Weight Training Instructor Course or Personal Trainer Course -- have student manuals that are learner-friendly and filled with detailed, practical knowledge that will motivate, educate and activate your students for a lifetime. Each of the courses has a corresponding student program work booklet containing: quizzes, assignments, learning activities, labs; end of course exams; and course completion and national certification forms, protocols and procedures information. To see some sample pages from our manuals click on any of the downloads below.


Testimonial: “I have been working with CFES for the past 12 years, implementing their curriculum at [my high school]. Over this time approximately 200 students have completed their Fitness Knowledge course. I am really excited to expand next semester and offer their Weight Training Instructor and Personal Trainer certifications to my students.

The scope of the CFES curriculum and the lay-out of the resources is excellent and thoroughly prepares students for a healthy lifestyle, a career in the fitness industry and even the health sciences. What a wonderful answer to declining fitness levels and inactivity in our youth! I could not ask for a more helpful organization to work with. Staff are always accessible, helpful and they are truly passionate about health and wellness for all. If you are at all interested in promoting healthy change, I urge you to contact CFES and they will help you every step of the way!”
