NASM and AFAA Recertification - Cardiorespiratory Training Concepts Certification Course

The Cardiorespiratory Training Concepts Course focuses on the cardiorespiratory system, which is comprised of the cardiovascular and the respiratory systems. Together, they provide the tissues of the kinetic chain with oxygen (O2), nutrients, protective agents and a means to remove waste byproducts. The human movement system (also known as the kinetic chain) is the primary system for movement production and is under control of the nervous system. In order to maintain a constant state of efficient operation, it needs to have a support system. One such support system is the cardiorespiratory system.

Course Objectives:

  • Define and describe the components associated with cardiorespiratory training.
  • Explain how cardiorespiratory training is used within an integrated training program.
  • Instruct how various physiologic systems respond and adapt to cardiorespiratory training.
  • Give health-related benefits associated with cardiorespiratory fitness.
  • Describe current guidelines and recommendations for prescribing safe and effective cardiorespiratory exercise to apparently healthy individuals.
  • Teach how to design and implement cardiorespiratory training programs to a variety of clients using an individualized approach.

A Course Worth Taking

There are five components related to physical fitness: (1) cardiorespiratory fitness, (2) muscular strength, (3) muscle endurance, (4) flexibility and (5) body composition. This course will focus on the first component, cardiorespiratory fitness. All exercise, regardless of the duration and/or intensity, must utilize the cardiorespiratory system to either sustain activity and/or recuperate from it.
