Beat your personal best by working the core to becoming a Fitness Trainer This Australian internationally recognised text has been designed to assist students undertaking the SIS40215 Certificate IV in Fitness qualification, studying to become personal or fitness trainers. The text contains core and elective units to support a range of fitness specialisations. Fitness Trainer Essentials 3e teaches the basics of fitness and nutrition principles, covers more on functional testing and nutritional assessment and guidelines. With a shift to full colour throughout and an abundance of new and improved images, charts and diagrams, this new edition is the most comprehensive text reflecting current industry standards and practices. Fitness Trainer Essentials 3e assumes that the reader has acquired the Certificate III in Fitness qualification. Therefore the topics covered in the text by Marchese have not been repeated in this text. Additional review questions are also available to retouch on key points from a Certificate III perspective.
