This course is designed to provide general guidelines with regards to fitness assessment in healthy populations. Through a series of lectures and workshops (fitness room), students will be exposed to the scientific principles underlying fitness assessment including aerobic and anaerobic energy systems, muscle strength, body composition and gross motor skills. At the end of the course, students are expected to be able to understand different tests and how to apply them with healthy populations. Students will also be asked to develop a critical thinking to better appreciate the available scientific literature.
