Physical Activity Component (50 points): The following activities were chosen for their ability

to address the health related components (cardio-respiratory fitness, muscular strength, muscular

flexibility, muscular endurance, and body composition) of fitness and to meet the learning

objectives and skill applied learning requirements set forth by the Foundational Studies

guidelines. Students get to choose between A to implement during the semester. Additional

detailed guidelines will be provided in class.

a. Physical activity logs: Students will need to document their participation in

physical activities at least twice a week for at least 30 minutes each time. It is

important to differentiate between physical activity and exercise; physical

activity can be viewed as any bodily movement associated with living, work,

and play, whereas, exercise is the planned, structured, repetitive movement of

the body intended to improve or maintain physical fitness. Some examples of

physical activity include: walking the dog, attending a Zumba class, playing

Wii fit by Nintendo, walking or jogging, etc. Being active should be

enjoyable and fun, so the activities that are chosen should be ones that can be

continued once the class has ended. Students are required to turn in physical

activity logs on assigned dates. Logs should include: date, activity, length of

activity, heart rate prior to activity, and heart rate after activity. See the

example below for how to document your activities.
