About the course

The aim of the workshop is to provide the knowledge about safe and efficacious exercise training. Workshop is divided between three modules and  theoretical (lecture) and practical (exercise console and gym) part. Workshop modules reflect our approach to exercise prescription: from appropriate functional capacity assessment (maximal test recommended) through adequate translation of results into training parameters (load, heart rate, Borg scale) to appropriate exercise training (protocol, progression, follow up after discharge). The course materials include the ACSM, AACVPR and EAPC as well as our own textbooks.
