This book presents a personalised approach to exercise. This book expands the role of the fitness professional from simple exercise prescription to include activity counseling, design modification, exercise demonstration, functionally integrated exercise, injury prevention and follow-up monitoring. Central to the book are seven client-centered models for each major fitness component, serving as a template of options for each decision in the prescription process. The text explains the vital role that functionally integrated exercise plays in improving performance and maintaining musculoskeletal health and teaches how to recognise muscle imbalance and prevent complication.
