This 45-hour self-paced physical fitness laboratory is designed for all students of the college to develop and encourage positive attitudes and habits with regards to health-related fitness components, including cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, and muscular strength and endurance. Each student, upon entry, will be assessed for risk factors and medical history, as well as body composition, cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility to establish an individual fitness profile. From this profile, an individual exercise prescription will be developed. Fitness activity will primarily utilize exercise equipment organized into an aerobic super circuit with additional activity prescribed in the aerobics machine area, body parts weight training area, and flexibility area. It is expected that the student will attend an average of three 50-minute exercise sessions each week. Additional assessment at the conclusion of the semester will provide data necessary to evaluate the accomplishment of stated goals. Offered on a Credit/No-Credit basis.
