1)Convert weights from pounds to kilograms, speed from miles per hour to meters per minute, convert METs to VO2 expressed as mL/kg-1/min-1, L/min-1 and mL/kg/FFW-1/min-1
2) Determine energy cost in METs and kilocalories for given exercise intensities in stepping, cycle ergometry, during horizontal & graded walking & running
3) Determine training heart rates using two methods: % of age predicted maximum heart rate and the Karvonen or heart rate reserve method
4) Gain knowledge of number of kilocalories required to both lose 1lb of body fat & to gain 1lb of muscle & apply knowledge to calculate time required, intensities, activity necessary to assist client in achieving goals
