Body Composition and Optimal Body Weight [WLOs: 1, 2, 3] [CLOs: 1, 3, 4]<
Group of People

Prior to discussing the last major component of health-related physical fitness, please read chapters 6 and 9 of your course textbook, as well as the required resources, and view the How to Test and Improve Your Body Composition (Links to an external site.) video. “Having a high percentage of body fat is associated with an increased risk of developing CVD, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. It also increases the risk of developing joint inflammation (arthritis). In general, excess fat elevates the risk of numerous health problems” (Powers & Dodd, 2017, p. 11).

  • To begin, visit a wellness practitioner (e.g., family practitioner, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, personal trainer, health coach, physical therapist, chiropractor, etc.) in your area to further learn about body composition and its impacts on health and wellbeing. Address the following:
    • Analyze the top three complaints the wellness practitioner has received relating to body composition. Note: The complaints do not have to include a specific chronic disease. Complaints, such as fatigue, lower back pain, shortness of breath, swelling in the legs, sleep apnea, as well as other physical and psychological complaints, may also be attributed to body composition.
    • Assess some possible causes for these complaints.
    • Explain how these complaints relate to the factors which influence weight management.
    • Approximately, how many clients with body composition-related complaints does the wellness practitioner see on a daily or weekly basis?
    • What three interventions does the practitioner recommend to minimize or eliminate these complaints?
    • Assess what health consequences could occur in the short- and long-term if these complaints are not addressed.
    • Which additional fact(s) or knowledge can the wellness practitioner share pertaining to body composition?
  • Assess three ways you can incorporate the practitioner’s expertise and your personal knowledge into your own life and/or the lives of future clients to regain and/or maintain optimal body weight.

Your initial post must be a minimum of 250 words in length and supported by at least one scholarly source, in addition to your textbook. Citations and references must meet APA formatting guidelines. Include the practitioner’s name, credentials, and location. You are welcome to scan and upload any body composition-centered materials provided by your wellness professional to share with the class. If you are unable to visit a practitioner, you may interview him or her via telephone or email.
