In previous chapters and on previous assignments you have explored the utility of a pre-participation screening tool for an encounter with the general population. In that exercise you could count of the statistical prevalence of certain conditions (heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc….). For the following assignment you will build upon your experience in crafting a tool to help in the prescription of goal oriented exercise. The information provided in the document offers you specific detail regarding the client’s goals. It is your job to develop an instrument (questionnaire, checklist, combination of the two or other techniques) that will not only assist you in developing an exercise program, but also frame the progression (the P in FITT-VP) for the client to understand the thoughtful guidance you are providing. I strongly suggest you use the course text as the base platform to build this tool and other sources to refine the instrument to encompass as much information as you can regarding the client and the performance goals you recommend for this person
