Assessment and Prescription I is designed to prepare exercise science students to take the American College of Sports Medicine Health/Fitness Specialist certifying examination by applying previous knowledge of exercise physiology towards properly screening potential clients and patients for health risks prior to exercise testing, conducting professional exercise test assessments, and using the data from these assessments to design exercise and lifestyle interventions to meet the client/patient’s health and/or athletic performance goals. The laboratory portion of the class introduces cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition assessments. The lecture portion of the class illustrates how this assessment data would be used to design an appropriate healthy-lifestyle intervention program for children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly.
