GEL 2.02: Interpret data as they apply to a discipline specific situation.
Your Assessment will be based on a 12- to 15-slide PowerPoint© presentation in which you specifically design a personalized exercise program using your fitness and wellness knowledge. You will determine your current fitness levels and employ the FITT principle to plan an effective long-term exercise program. Please include key points and graphics on your slides, as well as cited and APA-formatted 7- to 10-sentence paragraphs within your speaker notes in the Notes section of the presentation.
