This course is designed to prepare individuals to understand the benefits and risks associated with physical activity and to be able to assess and prescribe the proper exercise to patients/clients. In this class, students will be exposed to the world of practice by providing them with knowledge of how to assess each component of fitness in the general, clinical, and athletic populations. Furthermore, students will gain a comprehensive functional and diagnostic examination of the cardiovascular responses to graded exercise testing. Emphasis will be placed on sports-specific exercise assessment and program design.

Additionally, this course will prepare individuals in the use of the Electromyography (EMG) to measure and assess the function and health of muscles, including the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). Course content will include the study of the electrical signals that cause muscles to contract.
