You are the Director of Coordinated School Health for a large school district. Michelle is a teacher who  is anxious to develop a healthy lifestyle by starting an activity program. She has completed her health assessment and has received clearance from her physician to begin an activity program. She has come to you to get recommendations on how to proceed. Results from her fitness assessment and physical are below. 

You will develop an Individual Activity Plan that includes a Summary of her Health History and Identification of health risks based on outcomes of each of the assessments. You will calculate, present and explain BMI, Waist-to-Hip ratio, Heart Rate Training Zone and Ideal Body Weight –be sure to show the calculation for each. You will then develop an activity plan (using the FITT principle) that encourages both Cardiorespiratory and Muscular Strength/Endurance. Finally, you will identify possible barriers and supports for the activity plan and identify strategies that will help lead to success.
