Alexia Sherod is from Iowa City and is majoring in HHP (Health Promotion). Alexia envisions a career in event planning with an emphasis in health and wellness. She is also entertaining jobs personal training and yoga instruction. Alexia recently completed HHP:2148 Personal Training with Professor Angela Charsha-Harney which she says helped her achieve a certification in personal training and gain confidence in being able to teach and communicate with her clients. “This class really helped me stay on track and prepare for the ACE exam. We did a lot of partner activities that prepared us for working with different personalities which I believe is transferable to working with clients.” When asked what advice she would give to other students, Alexia stated “If you would like to become an ACE certified personal trainer, I would  definitely recommend this class! The ACE textbook is crammed with a lot of information so having a class to break it down week by week is really helpful. Angela (Director of Personal Training) and Drew Ferderer (Coordinator of Personal Training) are both really great resources and willing to help students get to where they want to be. So, if you’re interested in personal training and don’t know where to start, reach out to one of them!”
