This subject introduces the student to each of the five major streams of Exercise and Sports Science program. The basic principles of anatomy, physiology and biochemistry, psychology, biomechanics, motor control and learning, testing prescription and delivery of exercise programs within exercise and sport science settings will be the focus. This foundation subject is designed to provide students with both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to understand, apply and integrate the basic principles of the five major streams of exercise science as they relate to apparently healthy clients of both genders across the lifespan from conception to old age.
