    Aimed at lifelong fitness, this course guides students in strategies and techniques to make continual improvements in all areas of wellness. Students, with the guidance of a training instructor, set personal goals in four areas of wellness: physical, emotional, social, and academic. Fitness assessments enable students to establish baseline levels of fitness and work toward improvement in specific areas. At the end of each module, students submit a wellness plan documenting their daily physical activity, progress toward goals, changes in fitness assessment results, and reflections on personal progress.

    The course uses videos, graphics, and interactive learning opportunities to encourage students to get out and be active. By following personalized training principles, students can gain confidence from personal success while they develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
    The best way to live a healthy life is to prevent health problems before they occur—this course helps students do just that. And the best time to start is right now.
