Observation

Observation of the exerciser by the exercise leader and assistants is a vital aspect of monitoring. The leader and assistants should monitor the CR exerciser continuously for quality of movement, excessive sweating, shortness of breath, skin colour and general fatigue. As part of the teaching skills the leader and assistants should scan the group and also maintain face and eye contact. These can be indicators of overexertion and a need to adapt or reduce exercise intensity. It is important that there is continuity of exercise leader to ensure that the leader/s becomes familiar with the participants and how they react to exercise. (Chapter 7 will explore observation further.)
