Artifact: PED 182 Fitness Plan Cardiovascular & Flexibility
2.2: Achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of fitness throughout the program.
In my PED 182 class I was asked to create a fitness plan in which I was to increase my cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, and muscular strength. Before creating this plan I took a series of various fitness tests to see where I stood at the current time. After seeing these results I created a goal and set myself a plan in order to accomplish the various goals. These results shows that I am capable of assessing where someone such as a student is physically and creating a plan based on that information. Maintaining a health lifestyle is important for a physical educator because we are trying to teach students to be healthy we need to set a positive example for them.
