Abstract

The learner will list, describe, and apply ACSM risk classification criteria to his or her particular exercise facility and unique situation. In addition, the learner can explain why determining the presence of cardiovascular disease risk factors is an important aspect of overall risk classification. Finally, using Internet-based resources and case study presentations, the learner can risk stratify a potential client and determine the client’s 10-year risk for cardiovascular disease.
