Student Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1. Integrate results from health screening, fitness assessment, and goals into a safe and effective training plan for various case study clients.
2.  Implement, analyze, and modify training plans to accomodate changes in progression, goals, and client results.

Objectives: Untitled document
1. Assess one's health by completing a physical activity readiness questionnaire (PAR-Q), medical/health history, and lifestyle questionnaire.  
2. Demonstrate the ability to administer baseline fitness assessments in each component of fitness and interpret the results.
3. Identify strategies, barriers, and methods of goal setting.
4. Design written exercise programs for various case studies.   
5. Describe the principles and variables of training for a successful annual training plan.
6. Analyze the annual training plan for micro and macro cycles and skill development and recovery.
