Weight training classes are offered in many secondary level physical education classes. The type of instruction used during weight training is crucial, ensuring students understand the content knowledge and the enjoyment weight training has to offer as a lifetime activity. By using the sport education model (SEM) in weight training classes, teachers can encourage physical activity and physical fitness and students will have a positive experience. The purpose of this paper was to provide teachers who implement weight training the steps necessary to incorporate the SEM within a weight training program.
