Fitness Australia, Exercise and Sports Science Australia and Sports Medicine Australia have jointly developed an Adult Pre-Exercise Screening Tool reported to establish a consistent approach for pre-exercise screening and management across the broader industry. Its aim is to ensure better health outcomes and sustained physical activity for a client throughout their lifespan.
The three-staged Adult Pre Exercise Screening Tool is based upon the latest available research, includes an evidenced based exercise intensity guide and thorough user guide for practitioners.
Fitness Australia, Exercise Sports Science Australia and Sports Medicine Australia will be conducting CEC workshops and presentations on the tool over the coming months and a further developed version will be released around August 2011.
