This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to plan and conduct fitness appraisals, related to the health-related components of fitness. It requires the ability to determine positive behavioural change strategies in preparation for an exercise program and use fitness appraisal equipment according to manufacturer guidelines. This occurs after the completion of an industry endorsed risk stratification process and the subsequent referral of clients where required.
This unit applies to fitness instructors who work in a variety of fitness locations such as fitness, leisure and community centres. These individuals typically work independently with some level of autonomy in a controlled environment. Work is performed according to relevant legislation and organisational policies and procedures.
