This course is designed to examine selected physical fitness topics to teach and apply the principles of lifetime physical fitness, utilizing the five major components of cardio-respiratory endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and body composition.

Changing this course from HESS (housed in HES) to HES (scheduled through OUCC, approved by CUE) brings the course in line with the other Special Topic GEP courses.
