The present physical education curriculum offered at the college are the traditional lifetime sport activities. This problem was addressed by the design and implementation of a Diagnostic Health Fitness program for the college level student. The program's aims are to provide students with a basis for intelligent selection of habits, behaviorisms and programs to enable them to maintain a high quality of health and fitness throughout a lifetime. The program is composed of three major components: orientation (informing), student performance assessments, and execution (exercise prescription and monitoring). Assistance in procedures, execution of activities and evaluation monitoring are built within the program. (Appendices include a course syllabus, health/ fitness questionnaire, fitness and nutrition quiz, health/fitness assessment consent form, physicians consent form, physical fitness assessment form, cardiovascular disease risk factor profile, student exercise prescription form, warm-up and cool-down form, exercise log, Nautilus training principles, Nautilus gym policies, liability release, Nautilus training card, daily caloric intake form.)
