During this part of your group exercise to music course you will learn about the human body, the way it moves and it's composure. This includes learning muscles, actions, energy systems and bones. You will also learn about how each of these can affect a persons health and typical problems that may occur.

Having studied the issues at hand you will then learn how to give clients relevant and specific advice about how to counter their condition. This includes establishing dietary requirements and helping them implement changes to their eating habits.

An important aspect of the GP & Exercise Referral course is learning professional practice of how to go about communicating with medical professionals and working alongside them with a client. During this module you will learn the requirements and best practices of this process.

As a trainer qualified in exercise referral you will be working with clients who may suffer with any of the following conditions:

  • Hypertension
  • Hypercholesterolaemia
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Asthma
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes (Type 1 and 2)

As part of your course you will learn about each of these conditions and how they affect the human body.

Taking into consideration what you have learnt about specific health conditions, combined with your knowledge or exercise programming, you will learn how to put it all together and create programmes specifically designed for referred clients.

Communicating the issues clearly and sensitively is the back bone of working with clients who have medical conditions. This module will provide you with the tools to be firm but also conscientious to ensure the experience is always a positive one.
