Unit 13 Health and Fitness Testing for Sport and Exercise

This unit is internally assessed and externally moderated by OCR.

UNIT AIM: Everyone is different; people have different needs and different goals, particularly when it comes to health and fitness. But how do you establish those needs? Health and fitness testing should be a prelude to any intense fitness training programme. By measuring where a client is now in terms of their health and fitness, you can set realistic goals and plan how to help them reach these goals.

‚ÄčIn this unit you will learn a range of fitness tests, what they test and their advantages and disadvantages. You will learn how to complete client consultations which will give you the background knowledge you need about a client to be able to plan and deliver appropriate fitness tests. You will then learn how to interpret the data acquired from fitness tests and how best to feed this back to the client so that they can go on to make informed decisions about their health and fitness training.
