Learn the principles of exercise physiology for safe and effective exercise programs
In this interactive online course you will increase your basic understanding of exercise physiology’s main principles and learn how to apply the concepts to various exercise and physical activity settings. This course emphasizes that to be safe and effective, an exercise program must be based on sound physiological principles and the consideration of personal factors unique to each client (such as personal preferences, past experiences, skill levels, and so forth).
Developed by Laurel Mackinnon, PhD, the course includes a supplemental text developed specifically for the course. The online material is closely linked to the student text and presents learning activities that are designed to help you integrate the new material into your daily practices. A glossary of terms is included, hyperlinked to usage within the material, and the course concludes with a 50 item online exam.
