What’s it all about?

This course is ideal if you wish to increase your awareness and understanding of different aspects of health and well-being and how factors such as technology and a sedentary lifestyle can affect this. It is ideal for anyone looking to learn how to put together a personal exercise and nutrition plan and understand how to account for energy requirements
and fluid replacement in relation to the type of exercise being undertaken.

The qualification aims to equip you with a detailed understanding of the concepts of health and well-being, including basic anatomy and physiology. You will learn about the role of nutrition in exercise, including energy requirements and fluid replacement, and then learn about how to measure personal fitness levels and create a personal programme of exercise and nutrition.

No previous knowledge and experience are required; however, minimum level 1 English skills would be beneficial for completion of assessments.

You are also required to complete a fitness test as part of this course. If you become unable to be active and therefore cannot complete the fitness tests (I.e a timed walk) or log anything in your exercise plan (this could be from any fitness level start point such as stretches, walking, a physio plan etc), a pass cannot be given.
