Construct an assessment plan for a new client who is a 48-year-old female who has not exercised in one year, has no injuries, and no major health concerns. Indicate assessments you would complete, and provide rationale for why you chose the specific assessments. How would you then use this information to help her achieve her goal of improving cardio in order to run her first ever 5k?
Considering the client’s year of inactivity, the assessment plan should probably unfold in stages. She might first need to be accustomed to moving on a stationary bike or a treadmill. Her heart and blood pressure should be monitored. If the client handles the bike and treadmill well, more strenuous running exercises may be assigned until she is ready and strong enough to run a 5k.
