Fitness for Life Pathway

Physical fitness and nutrition are important parts of everyday life. Fitness for Life will give you the opportunity to create personal fitness goals and make nutrition plans that are useful and fun.  We will explore different ways to exercise and use your personal talents and ambitions to make physical activity a part of your daily routine. Bring a good attitude, be ready to participate, and get excited to advance your skills or try something new!

Course Requirements:

Note: You must complete the Seminar requirements in order.

In order to apply the concepts you are learning you will submit a fitness journal each week. The fitness journal will include activities that you do as well as the amount of time you spend on the activity, the intensity and notes about how you felt. You can include Heart Rate, Respiration, Level of Sweat, Muscle Fatigue and other factors in the notes.

These notes will help you to revise your fitness goals as we work through the course.
