The objective of this course is to educate students in the areas of fitness and health, to encourage them to engage in active lifestyles, and to improve their physical fitness. Areas of focus will include body weight exercises, weight training, agility/speed training, swimming, static/dynamic stretches, yoga, utilization of multi-apparatus equipment, which includes: weight training, kettle bells, bands, plyometric stations, exercise balls, and jump ropes.


Occasionally, a specific sport such as racquet games and basketball will be integrated, with the expectation that students will learn the motor skills and rules required to compete respectfully and effectively.
To this end students will foster a positive attitude and understanding of fitness in general, with the overall recognition that a life regulated by obtainable fitness goals can benefit one for a lifetime.
