In this course, Dr.Karen Holtgrefe presents the principles of exercise physiology. Rehab Therapists are led on an exploration of exercise testing and prescription for cardiopulmonary, musculoskeletal and endocrine fitness, including consultation for health and wellness amongst diverse populations most commonly seen by rehab therapists.
Normal and abnormal physiological responses to exercise are examined, and adaptations to exercise plans discussed. In addition, therapists will identify at risk populations and barriers to health, wellness, and exercise.
This Seminar-on-Demand is 3 contact hours in length (check your state’s approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).

Course Goals & Objectives:
This course is intended to instruct the professional through a study of clinical exercise physiology.
At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to:
- Identify the physiologic adaptations in metabolism and energy systems with exercise/training.
- List three physiologic adaptations in the cardiopulmonary, musculoskeletal, and endocrine systems with exercise/training.
- Recognize normal and abnormal physiological responses to exercise.
- Identify appropriate submaximal aerobic fitness tests.
- Recognize the need to adapt an exercise prescription to changing patient/client situations, complaints, needs, or responses to exercise.
- Define health, wellness, quality of life, fitness and health promotion.
- Identify “Healthy People 2020” and the World Health Organization role in population health.
- Define primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention.
- Identify various change theories including Health Belief Model, Social Cognitive Theory, Theory of Reasoned/Planned Action, and Transtheoretical Model.
Criteria for Completion:
A score of 70% or more is considered passing. Scores of less than 70% indicate a failure to understand the material and the test will need to be taken again until a passing score has been achieved.
