Expanded Course Description:
An examination of the components and principles of health and fitness with particular attention to
methods of evaluation and modification. Topics also include chronic disease, mental health,
nutrition, environmental health, national and global initiatives in health promotion, fitness test
protocols for occupational and sports applications and certifications for fitness professionals.
Course Learning Objectives
The purpose of this course is to assist students in developing an overview of the main concepts in the
area of health and fitness.
The specific objectives of the course are that students will be able to:
Demonstrate a breadth and depth of knowledge in health and fitness
Demonstrate knowledge of the terminology and nomenclature in health and fitness
Work individually or in a group to obtain and analyze fitness and health data.
Apply practical skills for assessing fitness, health and movement.
Laboratory Objectives:
Students will develop practical skills for administrating and interpreting of a variety of health and
fitness assessment procedures together with lifestyle counselling. All students will personally
undergo the health and fitness tests covered in the laboratories. Thus, it is imperative that students
attend laboratories dressed in activity appropriate clothing with their lab manual.
Course Materials: (there is no course text)
A. Lecture Notes (available on Moodle)

laboratory sessions and, at the completion of each session, must hand in to the laboratory
demonstrator a completed Laboratory Data Sheet (which is contained in the Lab Manual

quality of your hand-in. Together these are valued at 2% per laboratory. You can miss two
laboratories without penalty. However, each additional missed lab, for ANY reason will each
result in a loss of 2% (Note: students who have or develop medical/physical limitations are
expected to attend laboratories and participate to the degree possible). Your highest 10 lab
marks will be used to determine your grade.
2. Guest Lecture Reflection Write-Up (2%): Students must write a 1 page (double spaced)
reflection in response to the guest lectures on mental health and/or time management. For
example, how has the lecture affected your awareness of your mental health or others around
you? Have you been able to manage your time better? How has that affected your physical
health? (Hand in paper copies to your TA (Bethune 124) and electronically on Moodle. Due by
