Element 2.2: Achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of fitness throughout the program.
Artifact 1: Sample workout plan (16 week program)
In my PED 282 Health Related Fitness class we were required to make our own fitness plan. Constructing fitness plans is an excellent way to make sure one keeps up a health-enhancing level of fitness. In this case I was able to create a fitness plan that allowed me to increase my fitness in cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, muscular strength and muscular endurance. My plan is 16 weeks long and I believe focuses greatly on each area I previously mentioned. As a physical educator being able to help students create fitness plans is very important. The students will need help to develop a plan that will allow them to lead a physically active lifestyle. This is one of the main goals of physical educators so it is very beneficial to be able to create fitness plans.
