ZFA - Biomarker Fitness Assessment

Description

This fitness assessment course is based on the Biomarkers of Aging concept. Researchers have determined that there 10 markers that are more indicative of one’s health than one’s chronological age. These include: lean body mass; BMI; body fat percentage; waist-hip ratio; blood pressure; aerobic capacity; temperature regulation; cholesterol level and ratio; triglyceride levels; and blood sugar tolerance. Furthermore, they are objective and reliable. Not only will participants learn how to measure these variables, but they will be given all of the related information which they can use to educate their clients. Participants will learn how to take a proper health and exercise history, as well as learn how to measure and interpret the biomarkers.
