CASE STUDY 2: Jaime Summers
Resting Heart Rate: 90 bpm
Weight: 165 pounds
Body Fat Percentage: 35%
Jaime is a working mother of three teenagers. She has not been consistently active for many years. She was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure, likely caused by her high-stress corporate job and physical inactivity. She also has an affinity for processed and sugary foods. Jaime was recently told by her doctor that she needs to start exercising, eating better, and just simply taking better care of herself or else she on her way to additional health problems. Jaime will be attending her oldest daughter’s high school graduation in three months and wants to use the event as a goal date in which to make significant progress in her health.
Using the information above, calculate the client’s BMR and DCR
Calculate the client’s Target Heart Rate using the Karvonen formula (you will determine the appropriate target heart rate for this client given the information gathered in the initial assessment and evaluation)
Include the following in your case study submission:
A description of your professional responsibilities as discussed in the stages of the drawing-in process (Unit 12)
Discussion of any fitness tests, methods of evaluation, and data collection used to assess and evaluate the client’s needs.
Explanation for your recommendations and any specific conditions presented by your client that are found in the evaluation. (Be sure to reference course concepts when discussing rationale for your recommendations.)
A detailed 12-week comprehensive and periodized training program including specific exercises, sets, repetitions, suggested rest times, etc. Use an integrated approach in your program recommendations. USE CHARTS TO ILLUSTRATE THE TRAINING PROGRAMS.
Specific and detailed nutritional strategies with explanation as to how they will assist the client in meeting energy needs throughout the training program and achieving intended goal(s).
Keep in mind that a client should be able to take your program and put it into practice without having to contact you to clarify what you intended by your recommendations, or to explain parts of your program.
Include an explanation for WHY you listed and recommended what you did. Reference the concepts and theories covered in the course. Be sure to address why the program and exercises recommended are appropriate for the specific client given client history, current abilities, and intended goal(s). For example: if you are developing a program for a beginner client without any resistance training experience, explain how your program addresses the lack of experience, initial need for foundational development, process by which you would safely progress the client, etc. Tying your program to course concepts is a critical component of your case study.
