Course description

Please note:

The main components of a balanced, active and healthy lifestyle are:

* Physical activity

* Diet/energy balance

* Work/life balance

* Mental health

* Abstinence from smoking

* Adherence to recommended levels of alcohol consumption

* Sexual health awareness.

Physical activity is an essential and integral component of a balanced, active and healthy lifestyle. As such, physical activity has an impact on many of the other components just as the other components have an impact upon participation and performance in physical activity. Not all of these other components, however, directly influence participation and performance in physical activity. Candidates will be made aware of the effects of those that do.

At A2 level, you will examine ways of optimising performance, looking at applied exercise physiology, psychology and biomechanics. You will also focus on topical issues such as the impact of sponsorship, business, media, law and technology on sport today. In the practical unit, you will be assessed on three areas:

  • your performance
  • identification of weaknesses in performance
  • causes and corrective measures to address the weaknesses
