Meet Kayla F.! Carone Learning Student of the Week

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Kayla F.!  Kayla was recently in Fitness Fundamentals 2 – she feels she was able to improve her health by being realistic in her goals, she was glad that she was able to learn good goal setting practices and have the flexibility to make the goals she specifically wanted to work on with her fitness.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

The thing that I like most about my Carone Learning course is being able to move through lessons at my own pace.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life?

I have learned that when you are setting a goal you don’t just stop there. You have to have objectives and action plans as well in order to help you reach your goal. From now on when I have a goal in life whether it relates to fitness, health, school, etc. I will always create objectives and an action plan to help me reach that goal.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness?

My Carone Learning course has helped me improve my level of health and fitness because I now have realistic goals and a plan to reach them. I also have a set workout routine that I try my best to stick to.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals?

My cFitness Academy instructor keeps me updated on how I am doing in the course every week, which helps keep me on pace. She also made it clear that if any of us have any questions or need help with anything we can call or email her and she will help us.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial?

This course was one of my options recommended for me by my school. Taking this course over the summer helps me to free up my extremely busy school schedule next year.

 

Here’s what Kayla’s teacher had to say about her: 

“Kayla is very genuine and thoughtful in her work. She does a great job of working hard to do well in class and her discussion posts are always well thought out.”

In Kayla’s Fitness Fundamental’s 2 class there she is able to reflect honestly on her fitness strengths and weaknesses. Being honest is strengths and weaknesses is a great way to move forward with health goals. 

Strongest and Weakest Areas: “I feel that my strongest areas of fitness are my flexibility and my core strength. I think my weakest area of fitness is my upper body strength. I usually focus on building leg muscle and doing cardio because it is easier for me since those are also two of my stronger areas of strength. To improve my upper body strength I can include more lifting and different exercises that work my upper body in my workout routines. I also need to challenge myself by lifting more in order to improve my upper body strength.”

Just as all of our students are unique, we think Kayla is pretty great and we’re proud to have her in class! Thanks, Kayla!

Meet Joe L.! Carone Learning Student of the Week

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life?

The information on health care is something that I can use my entire life.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness?

Learning about teens health issues helped me understand more about my health.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals?

My instructor e-mails me to keep me on track.

I have really enjoyed my online class so far, I would definitely recommend it.

Here’s what Joe’s teacher had to say about him: 

“Joe has over some so much in the time he’s been in this course. Between serious health issues and learning difficulties, Joe has proven he has tenacity!”

In Joe’s Family and Consumer Science class there is a unit on decision making. Joe has had to make some really hard decisions, because of his health, for such someone so young.

Responses to questions about making difficult decisions:

1. What was the difficult decision you had to make? What made it difficult?

I decided to cancel going on a trip to Los Angeles with my school. I wasn’t feeling good and I knew the trip would be too hard for me. I wanted to go on the trip, but I didn’t feel that good.

2. Describe the process you used to make this decision.

My stomach doesn’t feel that good, so I had to cancel. I knew that the group would be doing a lot of walking and I knew that I would be too tired. My parents took out travel insurance so we wouldn’t lose the money that we paid for the trip. If I stay home, I can keep doing my IV feeds that help me feel better. We did IV feeds when we went to Florida for Christmas and it was hard to get the medicine delivered and set up the pump, so I knew it would be really hard to do in a hotel in LA.

Just as all of our students are unique, we think Joe is pretty great and we’re proud to have him in class! Thanks, Joe!

Greatest Accomplishment Discussion board:

”My greatest accomplishment has been establishing a workout routine and being able to stick to it. I’ve gotten over the hump of feeling like working out is a chore, and now it’s something I actually look forward to. Because I’ve had to fill out my logs, I’ve been experimenting with lots of different workout types and classes and I’ve been having a lot of fun. The change in viewpoints about exercise is big for me, and it will definitely serve me my whole life through.”

He was very impressed with the lessons and layout of the course and would recommend our courses to anyone searching for an online health class.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

For me, the pace and the way everything was instructed was what I enjoyed the most. The lessons were in depth, but also not complicated or difficult to understand. There was an assignment everyday, and the assignments that were given were not too drawn out; because of this, students were not overwhelmed with having to partake in an online study along with their regular schoolwork. Overall, the course was very well instructed and I enjoyed my assignments more that my regular school work. I would recommend it to anyone searching for an online health class.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life?

I enjoyed learned about coping as well as about my personality in the course. Early on, students were taught about personalities and the different ways people have studied them, which was extremely interesting. Also, our final chapter involved transitioning into college and preparing students to make the change. Considering I am about to go to college in the next few months, it was very helpful to have a small course on this topic and give me news ideas about the way I study and am currently preparing for college.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness?

This course helped me try and work harder to get into shape as well as change my dieting plans. Along with this, I decided to see a professional for the issues I am facing rather than trying to handle them alone.

Leah Swedberg was my instructor for this class, and she was really helpful in reminded me of when I might have fallen behind or been doing exceptionally well during my course.

“Reese is a fantastic writer who is very conscientious about the quality of his work. He is very open and honest about himself, his past, his experiences and his hopes for the future. He demonstrates great maturity. He has goals and fantastic expectations of himself for the future.”
