Fitness Guidelines and Exercise Physiology
Knowing your body and assessing your fitness and health needs are difficult tasks, especially when we are unsure where to look for guidance. It is important to understand your own body in order to determine what type of exercise is right for you. This webinar is the first in a series of four webinars that collectively aim to educate viewers on the importance of maintaining and achieving optimal fitness. To start, this first webinar will teach participants about the different components of fitness by clarifying definitions and reviewing basic exercise physiology. The need to differentiate between men and women’s fitness will also be introduced in this activity and will be expanded upon further in upcoming webinars in this fitness series. Personalizing fitness by creating tailored workouts and goals will not only improve health, it will also aid in better understanding how the body uniquely reacts and functions at different types and levels of training.
