Your team's goal is to create a personalized Fitness Plan book for your first client, Jim.  The Fitness Plan book is meant to guide Jim in his first two weeks of his new healthier lifestyle.  All of the information provided in the book must be appropriate for Jim's age, fitness level, knowledge, and available time (all of which can be found on the Client Profile attachment).  Your team will consist of four people, each of whom will be responsible for different parts of Jim's Fitness Plan book (brief descriptions are listed below).  You will need to use the information you have learned in this class throughout the semester, as well as visit the websites listed under each role in order to complete your section of the book.  Read through each of the steps below to complete your book. 

 

1.  Each team member will need a hard copy of the Client Profile attachment, and the JOB DESCRIPTIONS attachment,  so print those off now.

 

2.  Within the group, each of you will select one of the following roles:  doctor, physical trainer, dietitian, and professional chef.  Descriptions of each of these roles are listed briefly below, and full descriptions and requirements are listed on the JOB DESCRIPTIONS attachment.  Read over these descriptions and choose your role.  Once you have chosen your roles, move on to step 3.

3.  Now that everyone has decided on their role, use the links provided to find the information needed to create your specified pages. You may also want to use some of the information from your textbook or your notes for this class.

 

4.  Discuss among your group what you have found and what you plan to include in your part of Jim's Personal Fitness Plan book.  Make sure everyone agrees on the information/activity and that no one is needlessly repeating or contradicting information.

 

5. Create your specified pages and be sure to include all of the required information.  Be sure to use the Job Descriptions attachment as your check off sheet.  Each different section must have a title. Type your pages in Microsoft Word and save them to your personal thumb drive.  Be sure to spell check! 

 

6.  After each participant has finished their part, Jim's Personal Fitness Plan book needs to be brought together.  The group will need to create a Cover page.  The cover page should include the title:  Jim's Personal Fitness Plan, a picture, and Created by Team Health with each members' role and name listed.  An example is attached for you to reference.  You may use my example and insert your names, or you may choose to create your own, as long as all of the above information is provided. Also include a table of contents page.

 

7.  Once the Cover Page has been created, it is time to copy and paste everyones' work into the same document.  Jim's Personal Fitness Plan book should follow this order:

 

• Cover Page
• Table of Contents
• Section 1 (Doctor)
• Section 2 (Doctor)
• Section 3 (Physical Trainer)
• Section 4 (Dietitian)
• Section 5 (Professional Chef)

 

8.  Once the Jim's Personal Fitness Plan book has been put together and proof read, print off and staple together or put it in small binder/folder.  You will turn this in to the teacher.  Be prepared to present your information to the class and answer questions.
