Course description
  PROGRAMMING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR SPECIFIC TARGET GROUPS

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2018-19

Physical activity may have several physical, psychological and social benefits for the health and quality of life of the general population. These benefits apply equally to populations with special needs such as people with obesity, osteoporosis, hypertension, fibromyalgia, pregnant women or older adults with or without cognitive impairment.

This field of knowledge is a possible career path for graduates in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences. From this perspective, it is crucial that students in this degree are able to assess the individual characteristics of clients and learn how to plan and implement appropriate programs suited for the needs of these clients. They should also learn how to evaluate the progress and results of the programs.
