Health & Fitness II 100 Hours Certificate Course

Health & Leisure II course online: Build on what you learned in our prerequisite Health & Fitness I course by acquiring skills in creating guidelines for weights training, developing exercise programs, leading a fitness course and undertaking required testing.

You will also learn to manage fitness testing services plus gain a sound understanding of how and why cardiovascular responses are different from person to person. You can be sure that the information you will receive is up-to-date, because the program has been recently revised by highly qualified industry professionals with specialist knowledge.

A major challenge to someone returning to vigorous exercise, is overcoming the initial discomfort and lack of stamina they will inevitably experience. It may take a couple of weeks of exercising on a regular basis before a person sees an improvement in their fitness levels and this is true for all age and gender groups.

There is also an element of danger involved if a person's initial enthusiasm means that they push themselves too far when working out and become ill. Health and Fitness Practitioners therefore need to maintain a balance between encouraging clients to continue exercising at the same time as managing how much they do and ensuring they don't do too much to soon.

As exercisers gets fitter, their mental and physical well-being improves. Their endurance and stamina levels increase and as a consequence, they are able to achieve more day by day. In addition, clients will be able to participate more in physical activities such as running and sport, significantly contributing to a better quality of life in general. As well as physical benefits to a "get fit" campaign, there are undoubtedly  also psychological benefits due to the sense of achievement people feel immediately after exercising.

The possible psychological benefits observed in controlled studies include: an increase in extroversion, self‑awareness, self‑confidence and improvements in the memory recall of older people.

Getting fit is a win win situation, because provided exercise levels are increased gradually, it is extremely unlikely that your client will suffer any ill effects.
