SISFFIT018 Promote functional movement capacity


Describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to assess client movement and exercise capacity and develop an appropriate exercise program. It requires the use of functional movement knowledge in day-to-day professional practice to encourage healthy posture, effective movement patterns and safe exercise technique for clients.



Applies to personal trainers who offer exercise programs to improve functional movement for general populations, including older adults and young people. These clients are those with no unstable health conditions, pain or injury as identified through industry endorsed pre-exercise screening and risk stratification protocols. This unit does not apply to the provision of postural assessment, advice or treatment for an injury, disease or condition. The personal trainer is expected to refer clients requiring guidance, advice or treatment to an appropriate allied health professional. This unit applies to personal trainers who typically work autonomously in controlled and uncontrolled fitness environments. Work is performed according to relevant legislation and organisational policies and procedures.
