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.

 

  1. 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.

  1. Exercise Classes: Each student will attend 8different group exercise classes (4 before Midterm and 4 before finals) and document their attendance with an instructor. Classes must be different, so students cannot attend four different Zumba classes.  For example to receive full credit students could attend one Zumba, cycling, kettle bell, and yoga class.   The signature sheet is located on the last page of the syllabus and must be turned in on the due date.
