Health & Fitness III course online. Home Study. Refine your existing fitness and management skills! This distance learning course in fitness evaluation and management develops skills in analysis, evaluation, and consequential management of health and fitness characteristics for a specific individual.

Because this course deals with the intangible reasons that affect a person's motivation to stay fit and healthy, it is important that you complete Health & Fitness I and Health & Fitness II, before enrolling for this program.

  • Social considerations affecting someone's motivation to get fit and healthy
  • Managing a person's well-being by utilising different approaches to health and fitness solutions
  • Assessing someone's motor skills with the use of fitness tests
  • Statistically evaluating a subject's test results
  • Sports abilities and test results

This final in-depth course will not only provide you with information, it will also guide you through a series of set tasks that will improve your ability to be an excellent health and fitness professional. You can use the knowledge and skills you acquire in this excellent program, along with Health & Fitness I and II and a valid up-to-date first aid certificate, to help empower you to go into business for yourself as an independent health and fitness practitioner, or as an aid to enhancing your career prospects within the Health and Fitness Industry.
