Special notes
1 It is recommended that all candidates complete a basic health screen or questionnaire, such as the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q), prior to beginning training for assessment against this unit standard. If the screening results indicate the need, candidates should obtain a written medical clearance before beginning any physical activity.
2 Candidates may be provided with guidance and/or assistance when conducting fitness tests, and developing and implementing a personal exercise plan, from qualified people such as physical education teachers, sports coaches, gym instructors and/or fitness trainers.
3 Definitions

Aerobic capacity or cardiovascular endurance refers to the ability of an individual to keep performing physical movements involving the whole body for extended periods of time, where the primary source of energy production is aerobic respiration.

Flexibility refers to the range of motion around a joint.

Muscular strength refers to the maximum force an individual is able to exert on or against a given resistance.

Muscular endurance refers to the ability of the muscles, or a group of muscles, to keep working against a resistance.
4 Using reliable techniques involves correctly following standard fitness testing protocols to ensure the fitness tests can be reproduced in exactly the same way and under the exactly the same conditions.
5 The general principles of training are specificity, progression, frequency, intensity, duration, regularity, reversibility, individuality, warm up and cool down.
