About this Unit
This unit is designed to give students an understanding of and experience in exercise prescription and fitness program construction for the general population (apparently healthy) across all ages and in both genders. It will focus on the development of general health-related exercise programs, which improve aerobic and anaerobic fitness, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and body composition. Students will design, implement and evaluate a self-prescribed exercise program, and instruct training sessions for fellow students.
