Use anatomy and physiology knowledge to support safe and effective water-based exercise (Release 1)
This unit, SISFFIT048 – Use anatomy and physiology knowledge to support safe and effective water-based exercise, describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to identify the role of anatomy and physiology knowledge in aqua fitness instruction, and to use that knowledge to develop and instruct safe and effective water-based exercise activities. Knowledge of anatomy and physiology underpins effective performance in a range of work functions for water-based exercise instruction. This unit has direct links to, and supports, units for planning and instructing water-based exercise sessions.
The elements and performance criteria include:
- Identify role of anatomy and physiology in aqua fitness instruction.
1.1. Identify situations where aqua instructors use knowledge of anatomy and physiology.
1.2. Identify and use credible sources of information about anatomy and physiology that are relevant to aqua instruction.
- Select effective water-based exercise activities for participants.
2.1. Identify aspects of anatomy and physiology that impact selection of suitable exercises for participants.
2.2. Select exercises that account for variations associated with participant sex and age.
- Support participants to exercise safely and effectively.
3.1. Provide succinct explanations about the relationship between water-based exercises and their beneficial impacts on the body and health.
3.2. Explain injury risk factors and demonstrate and explain safe and effective exercise technique to participants.
