    This unit is designed to explore the principles of exercise selection and prescription for the generic population. Exercise modalities to promote health throughout the life cycle and to accommodate wellness will be addressed. The use of exercise as a treatment intervention in apparently healthy clients will be introduced. Knowledge of training principles and acute training variables will be used to develop exercise regimes for different case pathologies. This subject applies knowledge from the foundation areas of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and psychology and exercise science practice. It requires students to design and implement safe and beneficial exercise programs in the areas of aerobic endurance and resistance training.
