Scenario: SISFFIT014 – Exercise For Specific Groups V2 Final
Tony (66 years old) and Gloria (65 years old) have been married for 39 years. For their 40th wedding anniversary next year they’ve planned to take a holiday around Europe and South America for 3 months. They’ve both been members at the local leisure centre for over 10 years, mostly using the pool twice a week to maintain a reasonable level of fitness. They have sporadically used some basic equipment at the leisure centre’s gym, but have never had a structured program to follow. They have both now requested a gym program that they can do together to put them in good health for the trip, improve their strength and fitness and minimise the risk of falls when they’re sightseeing on uneven ground.
Both Tony and Gloria have similar fitness levels and currently have no medical conditions, illnesses or other health risk factors that would place limitations on their ability to exercise. They can exercise in the gym up to 3 times a week for 60 minutes each session.

2. Have 2 friends, family members or classmates play the role of Tony and Gloria and conduct a 30-minute program show,instructing the clients through the program you have designed.

i. Respond appropriately to any client questions
j. Record all programming variables,instructions or modifications to the original plan on the program card (for both clients)
3. Provide an outline of how and when you would monitor,review and evaluate Tony and Gloria’s exercise program over the next 12 months to ensure they are meeting their health and fitness goals within their intended time frames
