Due to the specific and unique needs and interests of the patient, the goal of exercise prescription should be focused on motivation and customization, thus making achieving goals more likely to become successful. Exercise prescription should take into account the patient’s medical history, and a pre-examination of a patient’s physical fitness to make sure a person has the capacity to perform the exercises.
