AHS 3820 - Practicum in Exercise Leadership

3 cr

This service-learning course will allow students to apply acquired knowledge and skills in exercise testing and prescription to lead adults from the community in tailored exercise programs.  Clients who have chronic illnesses such as heart disease, arthritis, or diabetes may be referred by local health practitioners.  Students will work in the gym directly with clients performing physical fitness tests, implementing exercise plans, and monitoring progress.  This course is for future exercise science, allied health professionals, and nurses who would like to gain practical experience working with a population older than university students.


Prerequisite: AHS 3150  or permission of instructor
