Course Overview

Metabolic syndrome identifies people with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The different risk factors for metabolic syndrome includes central obesity, hypertension, hyperglycaemia, dyslipidaemia and obesity. Lifestyle intervention such as incorporating physical activity has been shown to reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease in this population. This workshop will prepare participants with the exercise prescription guidelines and recommendations for people with cardiovascular disease. Special considerations during training will also be covered for the respective populations. The exercise guidelines and recommendations taught in this workshop will be presented using the frequency, intensity, time, and type (FITT) principle, which are core components of an exercise prescription.

Student Review

Ivan Tan

This course has provided me with insights on safety precautions for my patients. A good percentage of them are actually pre-hypertensive or may have some semblance of cardiovascular disease. With these knowledge, it allows me to track their progress via strength training!

I wanted to widen my knowledge in this field and have a clearer understanding. After attending the course, I was able to confidently guide my clients and the people around me with metabolic diseases to better their training perspective and lifestyle as a whole.
