Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
This course is designed to teach and apply the principles of lifetime physical fitness, utilizing the five major components of fitness: cardio-respiratory endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and body composition. A variety of health and wellness issues will be addressed. The components of fitness will be met through structured individually paced high intensity aerobic and strength activities. High Intensity Conditioning includes plyometrics, agility drills, and running, as well as strength exercises using body weight and a variety of equipment such as dumbbells, barbells, and medicine balls. Exercises are set to various interval lengths ranging from 20-120 seconds. Use of heart rate training will be emphasized in order to differentiate between high intensity and steady state aerobic exercise.

This course has been designed to guide students into enhancing both longevity and overall long-term

quality of life through the development and implementation of a comprehensive lifestyle plan. The

approach of this course is intended to improve each student’s health, endurance, strength, and flexibility

through the balanced integration of regular cardiovascular exercise, strength training, core muscle

development, flexibility practices, proper nutrition, weight control, stress management, and other topics

relevant to creating a healthy lifestyle.

Outcomes for Category Objective #1:
By the end of the course, students will be able to:

Explain and perform the fitness requirements associated with high-intensity physical activity including cardio-respiratory and cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, muscular flexibility, and body composition.
 
 
Means of evaluating:
1. Specific exam questions will determine knowledge of fitness components. Example: Use the Karvonen Formula to determine your target heart rate for exercising in the aerobic and anaerobic zones.

2. Students will perform fitness tests for cardio-respiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance and muscular flexibility. Example: Students will perform a 20-meter shuttle run test to demonstrate cardio-respiratory endurance and sit-up test to demonstrate muscular endurance.
 
 
Outcomes for Category Objective #2:
By the end of the course, students will be able to:

1. Discuss and explain how adopting healthy lifestyle practices will lead to lifelong wellness.

2. Identify and explain how the body responds during physical activity through cardio-respiratory exercise, muscular strength, and muscular endurance activities.
 
 
Means of evaluating:

1. Exams and assignments will determine knowledge of health and wellness
topics. Example: List and explain two stress management techniques.

2. Exams and assignments will determine the student’s knowledge of physiological principles that encompass body responses to physical activity involving running, muscular strength and muscular endurance activities. Example: How does an improved cardio-respiratory system affect your daily life?
 
&
 
Outcomes for Category Objective #3:
By the end of the course, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate and explain how utilizing different types of equipment, exercises, and workout intervals affect the intensity of an individual’s workout.

2. Identify and explain the benefits of high intensity interval training and how the body responds to high intensity exercise.
 
 
Means of evaluating:

1. Exams and assignments will determine the student’s knowledge of equipment, exercises, and the fitness principles associated with these activities. Example: Students will be required to create a personalized workout routine that incorporates exercises, equipment, and training techniques learned in class.

2. Exams and assignments will determine the student’s knowledge of how cardio-respiratory, muscular strength, and muscular endurance activities and the fitness principles associated with these activities can affect the intensity and effectiveness of an individual’s workout. Example: Explain how the variables of frequency, intensity, time and type of activity are used to provide a progression from an intermediate to an advanced aerobics and strength routine.
 
 
Outcomes for Category Objective #4:
By the end of the course, students will be able to:

1. Explain and demonstrate the ability to safely and correctly perform cardio-respiratory exercise, muscular strength, and muscular endurance activities.
 
 
Means of evaluating:

Exams, assignments, fitness tests, and daily class performance will determine a student’s knowledge and acquired skill in safely performing high intensity exercises, running, muscular strength and muscular endurance activities. Example: Students will be able to demonstrate the correct form and technique for squats in order to ensure safety of the participant.
