Check out this 20 minute presentation about supplement use in teen athletes. We all strive to be better at what we do. Teens are no different and the pressure can be even greater for them. Here we talk about the dangers and some healthy alternatives. This presentation can be provided to parents of children from all backgrounds. Even parents need to be reminded that all things require balance, patience and a little hard work to achieve your goals.
In this case study assignment, we learned how to tailor physical activities to the individual needs and current levels. Each person presented with a different goal, ability and resources. We learned to meet the person where they were and help them to progress to meet their goals. The principles used in this assignment were FITT (frequency, intensity, time and type) PROS (progress, regularity, overload, and specificity) to explain how the person would progress through the fitness program outlined. Each principle was attributed to the major fitness criteria as a whole: cardiovascular, flexibility, and strength. Addressing people as individuals and modifying the recommended activities will hopefully create a desire to continue with the program as it is seen as challenging but not overwhelming.
These are a few of my favorite websites which help to guide us on the journey to become great expressions of wellness.
