Health Opportunities Through PE

With a focus on health and fitness, this course guides student to be active and healthy now and for a lifetime. Effective strategies and techniques are a foundation of the course so that students can continually make 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.

By following individualized training principles, students can achieve personal success and gain confidence, while they develop healthy lifetime habits. The course uses videos, graphics, and interactive learning opportunities to encourage students to eat well, get up, and be active.

Leading a healthy lifestyle is the best way to prevent health problems before they occur—this course helps students do just that. And now is the best time to get started.
