- Big Ideas
There are four BIG IDEAS underlying PE12 – Fitness & Conditioning:1. Our personal fitness can be maintained or enhanced through participation in a variety of activities at different intensity levels.2. Knowing how our bodies move and function helps us to stay safe during exercise.3. Following proper training guidelines and techniques can help us to reach our health and fitness goals.4. Making healthy choices can help us to reach our health and fitness goals
This course will be intentionally fluid and challenging, with an emphasis on practical knowledge and addressing the “big ideas.” Through a deeper understanding of the basics – anatomy, physiology, program design, exercise technique, nutrition, and components of fitness – students will explore the various domains of health, fitness, conditioning, and training with a level of commitment and intensity that best suits their needs. By developing an understanding of the mechanical and theoretical components of fitness, students will be encouraged to make health-conscious choices that allow them to reach their short-term goals for the course, and their ultimate long-term goal of living a healthy and active lifestyle. In addition to that, we will build an awareness of community-based fitness opportunities, and help students build an understanding that fitness can occur anywhere, not just in the weight room.
