             Planning and Training to Improve Performance.

                        ‘Personal Training Programme’

                               Assignment Abstract

   Fitness is vital to achieving success in sport. Any athlete who is serious about
   their performance will carry out a fitness training programme based upon
   fitness testing, carried out to assess their strengths and weaknesses and to
   show improvement in their performance.

   Throughout this assignment you will take on the role of an athlete who, along
   with their coach, wishes to improve their fitness. You will carry out safe and
   effective fitness testing, analysing the effectiveness of the tests, and from the
   results, plan, carry out, monitor and evaluate a personal training programme
   designed to improve an identified weakness.


There are six tasks that you will need to complete for this assignment:

                   TASK   1: ‘Personal Profile’
                   TASK   2: ‘Testing Fitness’
                   TASK   3: ‘Assessing Fitness’
                   TASK   4: ‘Training Methods’

                   TASK   6: ‘Monitoring and Evaluation’
                          TASK 1: ‘Personal Profile’
      Method of Assessment: PowerPoint Presentation

As a starting point for the development of a training programme you are required to develop a
personal profile. This should detail the requirements of the sport that you play and your current
state of health, comparing yourself to athletes from other sports. Your personal profile should
contain the following information:

          Personal Information, including your name, age, height, weight, chosen sport, sporting
           background, and current level of physical activity.

          Your current state of health. In order to complete this you should:
              o Prepare an appropriate health screening questionnaire.
                                                                                        Unit 6 P2

               o   Use your questionnaire, and one other appropriate health screening procedure
                   (such as interview), on yourself and one other contrasting sporting individual.
                                                                                         Unit 6: P3

               o   Safely administer and interpret the results of four health monitoring tests for
                   yourself and the other individual.                                  Unit 6: P4

                      To gain a higher grade you must:
                          o Describe the strengths and weaknesses for your two individuals
                              based on your health screening and monitoring tests. Unit 6: M2

                          o   Evaluate the health screening questionnaires and health
                              monitoring test results, providing recommendations for lifestyle
                              improvement for you and the other individual.
                                                                                       Unit 6: D1

           Requirements of your Sport. You must:
               o   Describe the physical fitness requirements and skill-related fitness
                   requirements of your sport and two other sports.                     Unit 3: P1

                    To gain a higher grade you must:
                         o Explain the physical and skill-related fitness requirements of the
                             three different sports.                                Unit 3: M1

                          o   Compare and contrast the physical and skill-related fitness
                              requirements of the three sporting activities.           Unit 3: D1

                         TASK 2: ‘Testing Fitness’.
      Method of Assessment: Information leaflet.

In order for you to assess the correct methods of training you need to improve your performance,
it is necessary to establish your own strengths and weaknesses in terms of fitness.

PART A: Research

Prior to you taking part in any testing, your coach has asked you to research the different types of
fitness testing available to you. You should present this information to them in the form of an
information leaflet. Your leaflet should include:

              A description of one test for each component of both physical and skill- related
               fitness, outlining the advantages and disadvantages of each one.          Unit 6: P1

                  To gain a higher grade you must:
                          o Explain the advantages and disadvantages of each of the fitness
                             tests you describe.                                    Unit 6: M1



PART B: Testing

Now that you know which tests you can use to assess your fitness, you must carry out six tests for
the different physical fitness components, and record the outcomes in a suitable format.
                                                                                       Unit 6: P5

                  To gain a higher grade you must:
                          o Justify your selection of fitness tests, making comments on their
                             Suitability, Reliability, Validity and Practicality.    Unit 6: M3

                          TASK 3: ‘Assessing Fitness’
       Method of Assessment: Written Report.

In order for you to be able to plan an effective training programme you must first identify
strengths and areas for improvement in your fitness profile. You should produce a written report on
the results of your fitness testing, which must include:

           A description of the fitness test results
           An interpretation of your fitness levels in relation to normative data.           Unit 6: P6

                        To gain a higher grade you should:
                              o Compare the fitness testing results to normative data, identifying
                                  strengths and areas for improvement.                   Unit 6: M4


Learning Outcomes: Unit 6: 4




                                TASK 4: ‘Training Methods’
                Method of Assessment: A3 Poster Presentation

It is important for an athlete and coach to select the most appropriate methods of training to
improve fitness, in order to gain the fastest and most significant results. You have been asked to
help young coaches by preparing a presentation on the most appropriate methods of training for
different components of fitness.

Your coach has decided that the best way to do this is to prepare an A3-sized poster. Your poster
should include:

                  A description of one method of fitness training for each of the six components you
                   tested in Task 2.
                                                                                            Unit 3: P2

                                  To gain a higher grade you must provide an explanation of one
                                   method of fitness training for each of the six components you
                                   tested in Task 2.
                                                                                            Unit 3: M2

                  An additional leaflet describing which of the training methods you will be using to
                   improve the weaknesses you have identified in Task 3. (This is essential in
                   completion of further tasks in this assignment).

                                  To gain a higher grade this must include an analysis of your fitness
                                   test results, leading to your choice of training method.
                                                                                             Unit 6: D2

Learning Outcomes: Unit 3: 2, Unit 6: 4
                         TASK 5: ‘Planning Training’
      Method of Assessment: Training Programme

A time scale of six weeks is often used to see an improvement in fitness when following a particular
training programme. You have decided to plan a programme of this length, which should be designed
to improve one or more of the weaknesses you have identified from the fitness testing you have
carried out.

Your training programme must include:

      Six weeks of training, consisting of 2 sessions per week, identifying which methods of
       training you are going to use, and taking consideration of health and safety.
      The use of appropriate training principles such as S.P.O.R.T and F.I.T.T in the planning of
       the programme.
      A brief report on the importance of periodisation in training, and its relevance to your
       training programme.
                                                                                          Unit 3: P3


Learning Outcomes: Unit 3: 3




                      TASK 6: ‘Monitoring and Evaluation’
      Method of Assessment: Training Diary and Written Report.

You must now assess whether your training programme has been an effective way of improving your
fitness. To do this you should:

      Carry out your training programme over a six week period, producing a training diary which
       enables you to assess both the physiological and psychological effects of each session and
       make changes if necessary.                                                       Unit 3: P4

      Evaluate the effectiveness of your training programme. In order to do this accurately you
       should:

           o   Re-test your physical fitness levels.
           o   Describe the results of the re-testing, commenting on strengths and further areas
               for improvement.                                                        Unit 3: P5

                      To gain a higher grade you should:
                           Explain the strengths and areas for improvement following
                              completion of your six week programme.                Unit 3: M3

                              Evaluate your six week programme, providing recommendations for
                               improvement and future activities.                    Unit 3: D2
