Module 3: Metabolic Diseases and Disorders
Overweight and obesity are clearly among the most common issues for clients that any Advanced Health & Fitness Specialist (ACE-AHFS) will train. This module begins by exploring the obesity epidemic and explaining the biology of overweight and obesity. The role of exercise in the alleviation of these conditions is the centerpiece of this discussion, along with biomechanical considerations for training these clients.
This module also addresses the metabolic syndrome, including dietary, pharmacologic, and surgical treatments. Exercise programming and progression guidelines for working with individuals with the metabolic syndrome are also provided. The final session of this module covers the various forms of diabetes—type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes—and offers management tips and exercise programming guidelines for each. The following topics are covered in this online course:
- Overweight and Obesity
- The Metabolic Syndrome
- Diabetes Mellitus
