Learner Outcomes

Students will be able to apply their knowledge of basic biomechanical principles regarding exercise selection, execution, and sport performance.

Students will be able to apply their knowledge of bioenergetics and metabolism.

Students will be able to apply their knowledge of physiological adaptations to exercise and training.

Students will be able to apply their knowledge of the anatomical, physiological, and biomechanical differences of athletes.

Students will be able to apply their knowledge of the needs analysis process by analyzing different sports/activities/occupations and/or individuals and determining what qualities are necessary for success and performance improvements.

Students will be able to apply their knowledge of testing and evaluation by selecting and administering tests to maximize reliability and validity as well as evaluating and interpreting the results of those tests.

Students will be able to apply their knowledge of goal setting and key performance indicator (KPI) development.

Students will be able to apply their knowledge of program design (exercise mode, exercise selection, exercise order, exercise intensity/volume, progression, and periodization)  based on each individual’s chronological, biological, and training age and other individual characteristics. 

Students will demonstrate their achievement of this objective through written quizzes and exams.
