Principles and Applications of Physical Fitness: Course Proposal.
Yeo, David G.
A proposal is presented for a Community College of Philadelphia Life Sciences and Allied Health Services course in physical fitness. Following a standard cover form, a statement of purpose explains that the course is designed to provide instruction and experience in the basic areas of nutrition and physical conditioning, including dietary analysis, weight control programs, body composition, flexibility, cardiovascular endurance, and muscular strength and endurance. Next, course goals and a course outline are presented, and corresponding course-level objectives (CLO's) are identified. Finally, the CLO's, related intermediate performance objectives, learning activities, and measures of acceptable performance are presented. The five CLO's stipulate that the student will: (1) analyze physiological aspects of physical fitness (e.g., the cardiovascular, respiratory and muscular systems); (2) objectively determine his/her level of physical fitness; (3) analyze a sound nutritional program; (4) analyze selected approaches to physical fitness (e.g., specific exercises, and common pieces of fitness equipment); and (5) analyze principles of exercise prescription and food selection. A detailed course outline and sample instructional materials conclude the packet. (LAL)
