You will become familiar with the factors that can affect the decision to exercise and how exercise programmes can be structured and implemented to enable an overall improvement in health. Whilst on this course, you will also have the opportunity to take gym instructor, personal trainer or exercise referral certification at no additional cost.
The ultimate aim of the course is to produce graduates who can work with a range of individuals in a variety of settings to improve health, fitness, wellness and quality of life.
This programme has changed its name in 2017 and was previously named 'Exercise, Physical Activity and Health'.
You will learn about the many factors that can affect the decision to exercise and how to overcome resistance to healthy lifestyle behaviours. You will be competent in the prescription of exercise for healthy adults and special population groups. You will understand how to produce a nutritional profile for general health and optimal performance, and you will develop an appreciation of physical activity innovation in practice.

Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme.
