Fitness Assessment and Exercise Prescription for All Ages

Course Description

This course, brought to you in partnership with the American Academy of Health and Fitness, is a home study continuing education course for health and fitness professionals to safely and accurately assess cardiorespiratory fitness, muscular fitness, body composition, flexibility, and balance; then design safe and effective programmes for resistance training, weight management, body composition, flexibility, low back care, and balance for all ages.

This course:

  • Teaches you how to use exercise physiology, kinesiology, measurement, psychology, and nutrition to clearly convey how assessments from physical fitness testing inform the design of individualised exercise programmes
  • Contains invaluable resources for health and fitness professionals—athletic trainers, exercise physiologists, personal trainers, and strength and conditioning coaches who want to increase their knowledge, skill, and competence in assessing clients’ fitness as well as designing individualised exercise programmes.
