PED 119 - Solutions in Fitness and Wellness
Students participate in an individualized fitness program. Each student will be tested for fitness levels in cardio-respiratory, muscle strength and endurance, flexibility and body composition. Results of the profile will help determine a workout routine for classroom activity. Discussions on chapter topics (including Wellness components) and tests will assist students in making healthy lifestyle choices. PED 119 has one more hour of activity than PED 118, and more emphasis on taking command by making healthy decisions about workouts. There is usually an improvement grade built in for motivational purposes.
