EF310-2: Discuss the exercise and fitness needs for each age group cohort. Instructions: Unit 6 Self-Assessment Background: Conducting fitness assessments are critical components of developing exercise prescriptions for clients. Before conducting fitness tests, we want to be sure that a client is physically able to complete all tests and if not, make appropriate modifications. Instructions: To complete this Assignment, first read each client’s biography and gather their fitness testing results. Using the information contained therein, you will conduct health-related fitness assessments on each of our four sample clients — Justin, Sally, Jennifer, and Carl — to determine their fitness levels and identify areas for improvement. Answer all Assignment questions below for each of the four clients. Part 1: Discuss Testing Protocols Thoroughly describe each test used to assess aerobic, muscular strength/endurance, flexibility, and body composition for each client. Be sure to discuss each test’s purpose and testing protocols. Part 2: Challenges/Precautions Does the client have any issues or challenges that prevent him/her from performing any of the fitness tests? Do you need to modify any of the tests? Identify each client’s cohort keeping in mind they may belong to more than one cohort (example: older adult, diabetic, obese). When conducting fitness assessments for clients in that cohort, what are general safety precautions/instructions to consider? Part 3: Fitness Testing Results and Goals Discuss each client’s fitness assessment results for all tests: aerobic, muscular strength/endurance, flexibility, body mass index, and body composition (optional). In your discussion, include their score (percentile) compared to others in their age group. Identify a goal for improvement for each fitness area (aerobic, muscular strength/endurance, BMI, and body composition). Project must be in APA format and utilize references.
