Exercise prescription regularly refers an individualised plan of activities centred around fitness that are recommended for a particular purpose. Exercise prescriptions are most commonly developed and documented by rehabilitation specialist or fitness therapists and are tailored specifically to the patient or client.
When it comes to exercise prescriptions the main goal should always be to successfully integrate new behavioural techniques and exercise principles into the participant’s life. Ensuring that these measures engage and motivate the client/patient to be compliant, with the outcome of achieving their goals is crucial.
Generally, an exercise prescription includes exercise, specific workloads, intensity guidelines, and duration or frequency expectations, all of which must be met for the exercise prescription to be effective.
