The importance of physical activity cannot be underestimated as it relates to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It is the single most important endeavor in which one can participate to promote health throughout a lifetime. For decades epidemiological research has highlighted the health benefits associated with regular physical activity. Furthermore, there is overwhelming research illustrating the morbid and mortal consequences of a sedentary lifestyle.

  1. Recognize basic principles of exercise physiology.
  2. Identify fundamental transient adaptations of different systems in response to exercise (cardiovascular, respiratory, neuromuscular, neuroendocrine, energy metabolism).
  3. Identify fundamental permanent adaptations of different systems in response to exercise (cardiovascular, respiratory, neuromuscular, neuroendocrine, energy metabolism).
  4. Utilize the knowledge gained in the course to identify possible morbidity/mortality risks in individuals due to their response to exercise.
  5. Apply the principles of exercise physiology to prescribe exercises that prevent or decrease certain chronic conditions.
