Fitness Testing

  • According to ACSM, exercise testing is generally not needed for children and adolescents provided they are healthy and have no special health concerns (book 97)


Safety considerations

Safety Considerations

  • Children physiologically react differently to exercise than adults

    • Require 20-30% more oxygen while steady rate jogging

    • Higher chance of hyperthermia

      • higher body temperatures & inefficient sweat glands

    • Higher Chance of hypothermia

      • Large surface area and low body mass lead to heat loss in water

        Book 85-86


Safety considerations1

Safety Considerations

  • Interference with growth

    • Epiphyseal plate damage

  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

    • Genetically thick left ventricle wall

  • Dehydration

    Book 93-94


Safety considerations2

Safety Considerations

  • Adequate Nutrition

    • Young men and women need to be educated in what makes up a proper diet to avoid disorders that may affect physical and emotional health

      • Anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, muscle dysmorphia

        Book 114-117


Safety considerations3

Safety Considerations

  • Anorexia

    • Self starvation leads to inadequate nutrient consumption

  • Bulimia

    • Self induced vomiting does not allow nutrient uptake

  • Binge Eating Disorder

    • Excessive over-consumption most typically leads to obesity

  • Muscle Dysmorphia

    • Excessive training and low caloric intake leads to chronic pain
