Sustainable Exercise for Health Promotion - Theory and Practice

7,5 credits

The main content of the course is to understand physical activity and exercise as an important part of human health and well-being from a life-long perspective. Physical activity and exercise are further covered from an exercise physiology and test methodology perspective dealing with different aspects of age (children, adults, elderly), training status (inactiveactive), and environments (social, natural, built). In the course the students will learn relevant exercise physiology test methods, and write a project plan as a basis for their upcoming master’s thesis within the scientific disciple of Exercise biomedicine where scientific, sustainability, equality and ethical perspectives are considered
