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.
