Coaches at International level are employing the services and skills of exercise physiologists (plus psychologists, nutritionists, etc.) in order to lessen the chances of failure and to ensure victory.
This course is designed to give therapists the knowledge and understanding of how the body physiologically responds to and adapts through physical exercise.
Training principles will be re-visited and applied to fitness testing and evaluation. The therapist will be capable of assessing present physiological levels and plan appropriate programmes.
Case study reviews will be used throughout the course, bringing together a number of coaching issues such as injury assessment, diet & nutrition, competition and peaking.
