General Electives Course for Grades 9, 10, 11, 12
Our online academy offers a physical fitness elective for grades 9-12 that covers fitness, training, motivation, flexibility, and exercise logging.
In physical fitness, students learn about the components and importance of an active lifestyle. Students in grades 9-12 learn about the benefits of physical activity and good nutrition, mental and emotional benefits of exercise, correct motion and breathing, and the value of warming up and cooling down. Flexibility, levels of cardiovascular fitness, and strength training and conditioning are also discussed in this course from our online academy.
Lessons in this course from our online academy help explain calorie burning, resistance training, isolating exercises to focus on certain body locations, and ways to stay motivated. Developing a correct mindset and realistic goals also are covered. Some course work must be done outside the online classroom, and students have the opportunity to try different exercises and keep a log of activities. The second semester is one unit and ends with a focus on learning the basics of several different sports to encourage an interest in involvement for future personal fitness goals.
This course requires a fitness log of physical activity.
