According to the World Health Organization (WHO), hundreds of millions of people suffer every day from chronic respiratory diseases. Currently 235 million people have asthma, 64 million people have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) while millions have allergic rhinitis and other often-underdiagnosed chronic respiratory diseases. Respiratory diseases do not discriminate and affect people of every race, sex, and age. Some of your clients may suffer from a respiratory disease and you may be an important source for relief. Fitness professionals can effectively work with those who have a respiratory disease providing them with a better quality of life through movement.
This webinar will provide fundamental information on respiratory anatomy and physiology, types of respiratory diseases, causes of respiratory diseases, signs and symptoms of respiratory diseases, and traditional treatment for respiratory diseases.
Learn how to design and prescribe a proper exercise program including basic nutrition to improve the quality of life for your clients with respiratory disease. With progression tracking, your clients can experience a gradual and pleasant growth in their health and fitness status. You as their health and fitness coach can provide a positive experience to facilitate an effective path to better health and wellness.
