  • The course Physical Fitness - Fitness Tips and Workout Routines has been designed to teach you how to improve your physical health and well-being. The course will introduce you to the theoretical aspects of physical fitness and provide you with practical workouts that can help you develop and maintain it. Obesity is becoming a global epidemic in developed countries across the world and is associated with many chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and some forms of cancer. Research has consistently proven that maintaining a high level of physical activity and fitness can have significant benefits on many aspects of your life including your physical health and mental health.

    The course begins by introducing you to the basics of exercise physiology – the branch of science which studies how the body responds and adapts to physical exercise. Firstly, you will be introduced to definitions and terminology that are central to exercise physiology. This will help you obtain a strong grounding in the subject and benefit your learning throughout the course. You will then study the cardiovascular system and the skeletal muscular system. You will learn how the cardiovascular system functions and how the heart supplies oxygen-rich blood to the active skeletal muscles during exercise. Finally, you will examine various activities and workouts that have been shown to increase cardiovascular fitness.

    This course will be of great interest to professionals who work in the health and fitness industry and to anyone who wants to learn more about improving their physical fitness.
