KINS 260 ExRx Case Study Activity
Review the summary of client fitness assessment results below. Based on the assessment results and client information develop a comprehensive ExRx for Cardio, Muscular Fitness and Flexibility for this client. For each component of fitness (Cardio, Muscular fitness & Flexibility), you should include a FITT-VP outline along with a brief statement, 2-3 sentences, explaining the reasoning for your selections and any specific focus your program would have for that component.
CLIENT SUMMARY: Tony is a 56-year-old male client. He has come to you with the goal of improving his general fitness levels, being able to keep up with his new grandson easier and minimizing disease risk as he has family history of chronic conditions in older relatives. He states he often gets tired when chasing his active young grandson around and has noticed that over the last few years he has had a decrease in strength when doing chores around the house.

Resting HR: 72 bpm BP: 132/80 Waist-hip- Ratio: 0.92
Estimated VO2max (Rockport Walk Test) = 35.7 (Average)
Estimated 1-RM (Using a Multiple Rep Max assessment) = 150lb
