Health and fitness-Program

You are required to devise an exercise programme which reflects the needs and wants of an individual case study client. As part of this you will need to assess the health and fitness of the individual and use this analysis to devise exercise prescriptions which includes aspects of cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, core and flexibility.

The plan must also take into consideration psychological aspects such as motivation and exercise adherence
Your client’s is Andrew Harvey, a 24 year old university lecturer. Andrew currently exercises 3-4 times per week
on a static exercise bike. The intensity is usually moderate to hard, for durations between 1-2 hours long.
Andrew has recently started running with a work colleague, and has developed an interest in long distance
running, particularly half marathon distance.
As part of this case study you are expected to analyse the initial assessment data and use them to design a 12-
week CV training programme to meet Andrew’s goal of running a half marathon (13.1 miles) in 95 minutes (1 hr.
35 minutes).
Andrew also wishes to increase his muscular strength to help performance and reduce injury risk. A 12-week
resistance programme should be also included in their programme.
Andrew also currently has poor core strength and flexibility, so these need to be addressed in the programme.
