About this course

How do your cells turn food into motion? What physiological factors can cause a person to have a bad ride or race? What type of training is best when preparing for adventure riding? Answering these questions effectively requires understanding cellular energy metabolism. This course focuses on understanding how a cell creates fuel through metabolic processes so you can apply that knowledge to coaching and training. We recommend this course as a precursor to any of our training program courses. This course is eligible for 1 NICA CEU when completed fully as directed. Our CEU-eligible courses are designed to involve an average of 1 hour of content learning per NICA CEU. *Estimated course duration does not include time spent on quizzes, the final exam, or the introduction and course evaluation modules. Please be aware that this time is an approximation and personal completion time may vary depending on internet speed and individual learning style differences.
