Brittany Decavele '16
Exercise Science
Missouri Valley College offers a hands on learning experience in Exercise Science. With small class sizes, a large student athlete population and well educated, caring teachers you can find yourself excelling beyond peers at other universities.

Brittany is a personal trainer at Anytime Fitness, obtaining this position shortly after graduating. During her time at Valley, she took an Exercise Science course that allowed her to work personally with a faculty member as a client for personal training. She also took as another class where she was assigned a sport and was responsible for creating a workout plan for that specific sport, which included in-season, post-season and pre-season workouts. Because of this program, she was able to show prospective employers that as a new college grad, she knew how to set up workouts for both individual and group training sessions. The classes and hands-on-learning experiences she was provided at Valley allowed her to get hired on-the-spot for her current position.
