The best way to live a healthy life is to prevent health problems before they occur. This course creates opportunities for students to apply new skills and knowledge to experiencing the benefits of a physically active lifestyle. Students will be required to complete a mixture of physical activities, online assignments, tests, and a research paper—and to record in their workout log cardiovascular, flexibility, strength and endurance activities. They will learn about proper weight, good diet, and managing stress. By the end of the course, they will have gained the knowledge needed to begin developing healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
