ASSESSING FITNESS AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: HOW TO GET BETTER COMPLIANCE FROM YOUR PATIENTS

Presenter: Coombes JS

The relationship between physical activity levels and cardiorespiratory

fitness is not strong, indicating that these are two different constructs.

Assessing the physical activity levels of clients has been made easier with

wrist worn personal devices and smart phone applications. Measuring

fitness levels has also been revolutionised with the use of non-exercise

fitness tests based on algorithms from large studies with objectively

measured cardiorespiratory fitness values. This presentation will discuss

the strengths and limitations of these approaches and how they may be

used to improve the physical activity and fitness levels of your patients.

Key Practice Points:

• Participants will be given knowledge on the use and effectiveness of

devices and applications to assess the physical activity and fitness levels

of their clients

CPD Points: 0.5
