This course is designed 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. A variety of health and wellness issues will be addressed. Fitness kickboxing includes strikes against a heavy bag, focus mitt punching, medicine ball core exercises, running, and jumping rope. The components of fitness will be met through structured fitness kickboxing activities as well as strength and endurance conditioning exercises.

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.
