Exercise prescription is an art. After clearly assessing a clients fitness level it is important to set the proper foundation for a strong and healthy lifestyle. If all a client does on there own is running and they enjoy that's great but it is important to be well rounded. For example: Long distance running is endurance sport and its energy system is aerobic using type I muscle fibers. this is one system what about the other systems in the body? Strength/Power anaerobic type IIa & IIb muscle fibers these systems need to be trained as well. The list goes on and the job of an experience trainer is to work with all systems of ones body and use science to design and quantify.
