Fitness Lab

I hope you enjoyed your introductory classes on Yoga and Pilates. I believe some of you found those activities to be harder than the weight workouts!! We have read and discussed the handout about the Fitness Target Zone and Threshold of Training. Please be prepared for a written matching quiz on 5/8. This quiz will cover the Principles of Progression, Overload, and Specificity. Please look over your handout or review the attached copy. This will be the last week of regular weight lifting. Next week, you will do the circuit training on Monday only due to Field Days. The last week of school is when you will be re-testing all of the fitness assessments for a post-test. Take advantage of this last week of work-outs and give it all of your effort!

Parts of Fitness

This week we will start our normal routine of circuit workouts on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, then add a day of classroom work and activities on Tuesday and Thursday. Our activities will vary from week to week, as will the handouts we read and discuss. You are responsible for keeping the handouts and reviewing them before taking the written quiz. Attached you will find a copy of the study sheet you have already received. We will concentrate on the eleven parts of Fitness this week and have a quiz on the information next Tuesday, 4/17. As you work out this week, think about the area of Fitness that may be your weakest. How would you go about improving it? We will develop plans to improve all areas!

7th Grade Fitness/4th Quarter

Welcome to Fitness class. Our first order of business is to complete the Baseline Assessment of your Fitness level. We will accomplish that during Week 1. The items to be evaluated are:
age
height
weight
percent of body fat
shoulder flexibility
blood pressure/resting heart rate
3 minute step test (cardiovascular fitness)
Sit and Reach (flexibility)
Leg Press (strength and endurance)
Chest Press (strength and endurance)

These same evaluations will be taken at the end of the nine weeks in an end of course assessment. Make sure you have returned your parent permission form. You will be receiving a class syllabus on 3/20. That will also need to be signed and returned before you can work out on the weight machines. You should be dressing out for Fitness class daily. Once the baseline assessment is completed, we will be working out with the weights on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, you will have a Fitness class. You will be learning about the eleven parts of fitness, completing worksheets, applying fitness skills to games and activities, and participating in alternative classes such as Tae Bo, Pilates, and Yoga. Please dress comfortably and appropriately. You should be able to move arms and legs without any difficulty or inappropriate display of underwear/skin. You just might be surprised how much your fitness level can improve in nine short weeks!

Next week we will have a guest instructor lead the class through a Yoga and a Pilates workout.

Parts of Fitness/3rd Quarter

We have finished our baseline assessments and begun our circuit training using the weight machines. This rotation will get easier as you complete a few more. This week on our fitness classroom days, we will be learning about the Parts of Fitness. We will be discussing a handout (also attached) which will go into your Fitness folder. You will be responsible for the information contained in this handout and take a short quiz on it next week. If you are getting thirsty during your workouts, please bring a water bottle with you name or initials on it to be used during class. It is hard to dismiss anyone to the water fountain without you missing one of the machines or cardio steps. You may also want to bring a towel to use in class. Towels should be able to fit into your PE locker and taken home at the end of the week along with your clothes. Think of the improvements in your fitness level you are capable of making this nine weeks!
