Publishers Description: The demand for multi-skilled fitness instructors is rising as more and more Australians realise the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise. The Essential Guide to Fitness: For the Fitness Instructor is an Australian text designed to help prepare students for a successful career in the fitness industry. It introduces the reader to the skills a fitness instructor needs, including an introduction to body systems and exercise science, client orientation, induction and screening, exercise programming and equipment, workplace communication, specific markets and populations, and OH and S, risk and legal responsibilities. The text is aligned to competencies contained in the Fitness Industry Training Package (SRF04) Certificate III in Fitness. It is written in a clear, easy-to-understand format and includes a range of learning features that enhance student understanding: Objectives to outline the key topics to be covered in each chapter -- Workout! exercises to help consolidate the learning in each chapter -- Case studies to provide practical application of skills -- Glossary terms in bold and listed in the back of the text for ease of reference. The Essential Guide to Fitness: For the Fitness Instructor uses numerous illustrations and photographs to clearly demonstrate concepts, equipment and positions that every fitness instructor needs to know. It also makes a valuable professional reference for those already in the industry.
