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.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
