About this Unit
This unit investigates the functioning of the human body during physical activity and exercise and its acute and chronic responses to the demands of regular, vigorous physical activity. The unit involves a series of laboratory sessions looking at strategies to promote participation in physical activity, and the principles of exercise, exercise testing and exercise prescription. Various measurement techniques for assessing physical capacities are examined along with the application of their results to exercise prescription and activity involvement for children, adolescents and adults specific to the individual. Students undertaking this unit will be expected to complete some units of competence towards a Level 1 Fitness Trainers Accreditation in their own time, at their own expense.
