Question Description

Calculations: Calculate the client's target heart rate using the Karvonen formula.

Training Program: Design a full 12-week periodized training program for the client described in the Client Profile. Be very specific as you design the training program. This is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your full comprehension of the information and concepts discussed throughout the course. List the types of exercise, duration, sets, reps, rest intervals, and so on.

Include the following in your case study submission:

  • A description of your professional responsibilities as discussed in the stages of the drawing-in process (Unit 12)
  • Discussion of any fitness tests, methods of evaluation, and data collection used to assess and evaluate the client's needs
  • Specific conditions that you have identified in the client profile
  • A fully detailed 12-week comprehensive and periodized training program including specific exercises, sets, repetitions, suggested rest times, etc. Use an integrated approach in your program recommendations.
  • Specific and detailed nutritional strategies and an explanation as to how the strategies will assist the client in meeting energy needs
  • Explanation for your chosen assessment, programming, and nutritional recommendations. (Be sure to reference course concepts when discussing rationale for your recommendations.

Keep in mind that a client should be able to take your program and put it into practice without having to contact you to clarify what you intended by your recommendations or to explain parts of your program.

Don't forget your explanation for WHY you listed and recommended what you did. Reference the concepts and theories covered in the course. Be sure to address why the program and exercises recommended are appropriate for the specific client given the client's history, current abilities, and intended goal(s). For example: if you are developing a program for a beginner client without any resistance training experience, explain how your program addresses the lack of experience, initial need for foundational development, process by which you would safely progress the client, etc. Tying your program to course concepts is a critical component of your case study.

Review the Client Profile below.

Client Profile: Diana Prince

Age: 37

Gender: Female

Resting Heart Rate: 75 bpm

Height: 5'5"

Weight: 165 lb

Body Fat Percentage: 31%

Background and Goals: Diana is a 37-year-old mother of two children. She used to exercise fairly consistently (mostly jogging and light aerobic activities) before having kids. Ever since she had her first child 9 years ago, she has not been very active. Diana has her 20-year high school reunion coming up in 3 months (12 weeks). She would like to look and feel her best and is eager and willing to spend the next 12 weeks doing what she can to change her body.

Calculating the Heart Rate
Estimated Maximum Heart Rate (MHR) = 220-37=183 b-min-1
Heart Rate Reserve = MHR-Resting Heart Rate
= (183-75) b-min-1= 108 b-min-1
HRR × Desired = 108 b-min-1× 60% = 64.8 b-min-1
= 108 b-min-1 × 80% = 86.4 b-min-1
The HRR above are the limits of the desired intensity; 60% and 80%.
Lower limit of target heart rate = 64.8 b-min-1 + 75 b-min-1
= 139.8b-min-1
Upper limit of target heart rate = 86.4 b-min-1+75 b-min-1
= 161.4b-min-1

Professional responsibilities
As a professional trainer and an aerobics instructor, one of my responsibilities is to
assess my client and find out the physical shape that he or she is currently in. I am also
assigned the duty of determining what the client expects training sessions, (Field, 2009).
Does he or she want to become more physically fit, firm up, or lose weight? I should make
sure that my client is able to go through the particular program that is decided on. I will then
meet with her regularly. I will then go through an exercise routine with the client that I have
tailored specifically for him or her. I will begin by instructing my client on how to do each
activity correctly. I may then exercise with the client or offer encouragement to make my
client continue with the exercise routine.


Fitness tests, methods of evaluation, and data collection
Fitness tests should be conducted in the correct order, (Attridge & Felice, 2015).
During the 1st and 2nd training session, I will introduce Diana to each exercise. I will
demonstrate an appropriate form and she will perform with the lowest weight available or a
PVC pipe. All this will include machine exercises, dumbbell, barbell, and other bodyweight
exercises. These ...
