The Benefits of Being Fit — Community Presentation
Since you have a health and wellness background, your supervisor asks you to give a presentation at the local library for a small group of community members. Select one of the following audiences to use for this project: elderly, youth, diabetics, obese, or individuals with cardiovascular disease.

For your presentation, you must:

Describe the benefits of a regular exercise routine.
Appraise the relationship and benefits of cardiorespiratory endurance training, muscular strength and endurancetraining, flexibility, and body composition. Explain the factors affecting these components.
Develop at least three specific exercise recommendations that could be incorporated into your selected group’s
daily routine, and include how your recommendations address each of the components (from number 4 above) ofhealth-related fitness, so that the overall state of fitness for your group may be improved.
Provide at least three tips on exercising safely,environmental conditions, fluid intake (before/during/after physical activity), etc.
Examine exercise behavior and physical activity habits as well as the common barriers and/or challenges to
fitness. Offer sound tips on how these challenges and barriers can be overcome.
Visit three local facilities that offer fitness programs tailored to your chosen group.
