    Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired

    This Degree comes with the goal of preparing future exercise professional for this task, based on the development of autonomous knowledge update, as well as of permanent critical analysis on its practices and the practices of those that surround them. The performance principle to be worked in this degree is founded on a professional practice based on evidence, mirroring the current trend in the area of health and well-being, which will allow an effective integration in multidisciplinary teams in clinical or gym contexts. For a greater training specificity, two specialisations were created: a) Exercise, Nutrition and Health, that looks at providing answers to work closer to the clinical context, or in strict connection with it, but in gym or health club contexts; and b) Fitness, that will allow for a training directed specifically to the professionals that are developing their activity (or intend to in the future) in gym and health club contexts. In a work market of great potential and expansion, where the demand for specialised training is greater and greater, the differentiation and success of a career will be strongly conditioned by the competences acquired in a university context.
  • Objectives


    It is normal to associate exercise with health and well-being. Hippocrates, father of medicine, recognised this in his texts when he wrote ¿Food alone is not enough to keep Man healthy, for he also needs to exercise¿¿. Presently, society places on exercise professionals the responsibility for compensating the sedentary lifestyle promoted by the current socio-cultural context. With the advent of epidemics, like obesity and cardiovascular disease, the role destined for this professional class as a guarantor of a healthy society becomes clear.
