Pocket Prep has added a brand new exam to its lineup of fitness exam prep offerings–the ACSM Certified Exercise Physiologist® (EP).
The ACSM-EP® certification is the tenth addition to the company’s Fitness Pocket Prep app. This app includes exam study prep for a range of fitness certifications spanning personal trainers, strength and conditioning specialists, performance enhancement specialists, and more.
The role of exercise physiologists is to develop and administer programs designed to establish safe and effective exercise and healthy lifestyle behaviors for their clients–ranging from cardiorespiratory fitness and muscular strength and endurance to balance and range of motion.
The EP® certification is offered by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), a nonprofit organization representing 70 occupations within the sports medicine field throughout 90 countries. To apply for the ACSM-EP® certification exam, applicants must have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in exercise science. They also must be employed in a commercial, community, studio, worksite health promotion, university, or hospital-based fitness setting.
Pocket Prep’s study material for the ACSM-EP® certification exam features 500 practice questions spanning the four domain areas of the exam. Those domains are Exercise Counseling and Behavior Modification, Exercise Prescription and Implementation, Health and Fitness Assessment, and Risk Management and Professional Responsibilities.
The following two textbooks were used to build the content, and they are used as reference points in the detailed answer explanations for every question within the app:
- ACSM’s Resources for the Exercise Physiologist, Third Edition by Benjamin Gordon and the ACSM
- ACSM’s Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription, Eleventh Edition by Gary Liguori and the ACSM
Pocket Prep has been providing study prep for a decade and averages a 4.8-star App Store rating on all of its exam prep apps. As the nature of examinations means regular content and version changes, Pocket Prep will always make content updates as exam standards change.
