The aim of this unit is to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to design and implement exercise programs for healthy adults focussing on gym-based settings. This unit will cover pre-exercise health screening, physical assessments (e.g. anthropometry, flexibility, posture testing, cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness), interpretation of test results, goal setting, prescription and implementation of cardiorespiratory and resistance exercise.
