Equipment and Facility Setup 
Training facilities are likely to vary all the way from fully equipped gyms with a variety of aerobic 
and weight resistance modalities to only the bare essentials.  In either case, significant 
improvement can be realized in the areas of strength, aerobic fitness, and flexibility with a 
properly designed program.  Utilizing basic exercises on a consistent routine basis, whether using 
sophisticated equipment or one's own body weight, will achieve improvement.  The exercises 
illustrated in this manual require only the use of dumbbells for the strength training and mats or 
grassy areas for the stretching exercises.  Walking and jogging can be done almost anywhere 
that a proper course has been designed and safety issues have been considered and addressed.  
Typical basic equipment includes: 
Hand held weights 
Large display clock 
Set of 10 step stairs 
Appropriate training shoes (trainee provided) 
A sampling of equipment vendors is listed in Appendix F.

repair and recuperate;

air quality 
is a factor; 
provide adequate access to water; and, 
have in place a response plan for dealing with injuries and/or emergency medical
