Assessment 1: Review of a Physical Activity Health Promotion Program
Physical Activity Health Promotion Program
Friday, September 9, before 11:59 pm via Turnitin in Canvas
Community-based physical activity health programs and initiatives have been developed to promote and engage end users in physical activity/exercise with the ultimate goal of improving physical, mental, social, and emotional health and well-being. The concept is to encourage people to be self-aware in terms of their health status; provide resources and tools, and empower individuals to improve their overall health.
Students are required to
a physical activity health promotion program. This must be an initiative or intervention specifically targeting individual
physical activity behavior change
(e.g., increase physical activity levels). Thus, a program focused on nutrition, for example, is
appropriate. Also, a one-off single event (e.g., Terry Fox Run) is
appropriate, it must be an ongoing program.
Students are to search and investigate the details of the program and critically review the program as a health promotion tool/strategy/approach for individuals. Students are also expected to provide recommendations on how the program could be further improved to enhance the program’s effectiveness.
Step 1: Search and identify a physical activity health promotion program/intervention. It can be an online or face-to-face program and can originate in Australia or Internationally. This can be a commercial-based (e.g., 10,000 Steps Australia) or a research-based program/initiative (e.g., Football Fans in Training-FITT Program).
Step 2: Familiarise yourself with the program; test the resources/tools available; engage in sharing tips and resources, and install/use the mobile application (if relevant). The point is you want to make sure you understand all aspects of the program, including its usability, its appropriateness, content, modes of delivery, etc.
Step 3: You are to review the program and provide recommendations about how the effectiveness of the program could be further improved.
Step 4: Write your review using the following headings:
