Meet Libby S. – Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Libby is taking Health and Personal Wellness – a class she needs to graduate high school!

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course? I really like how it encourages me to improve and grow. It gives me a chance to learn and apply what I’ve learned.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life? I’ve learned how important it is to take care of myself and pay attention to my wellness. Sometimes it’s easy to push my needs to the side, but I’ve found that if I continue to do that it not only affects myself, but the relationships around me.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness? It has helped me improve my communication skills and how I approach people around me.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals?
My instructor has been absolutely fantastic! She answers me quickly when I have questions and she’s very kind.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial? I signed up for this course because I needed to take a health class to graduate. This has benefited me in many ways and I’ll continue to remember things from this course throughout my life.

Here’s what Libby’s teacher had to say about her:
Has been doing great with her health habit (working on opening up to people – which is so hard!). She does fantastic work and is great about letting me know what’s going on if she doesn’t get something in on time.

Meet Dante S. – Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Dante is taking Intro to Group Sports 2 Accelerated – one of many course he has taken with Carone Learning!

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course? It’s interesting and I can do it on my own schedule.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life? To pay more attention to my fitness.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness? I feel stronger.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals? She’s always been there if I needed something.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial? I needed this credit for my middle school and it keeps me on track with my fitness.

Here’s what Dante’s teacher had to say about him:
I have had the pleasure of instructing Dante in several courses over the last year or two. In that time he’s continually submitted good work and made the effort to improve. However, I’m most impressed with his fitness journey as it’s gone through a couple transformations until he seems to have found a routine that he enjoys and offers a great variety of exercises to keep him active–basketball is his favorite! Early on it was sometimes difficult for him to meet the requirements or get enough days in each week because he wasn’t particularly thrilled with the exercises he was doing. Now he exercises most day of the week, oftentimes including his family and friends as well. While he has found a solid routine that he likes I find that he still tries to make time to try new things from time to time, like yoga (not his favorite). It’s been fun watching Dante work on his workout routines over the last year or more as well as the progress he’s made with his fitness goals in that time.

Meet Lily N. – Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Lily is taking Fitness Fundamentals 2 – her second course with Carone Learning!

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course? I like how my Carone Learning course, 21-22 Fitness Fundamentals 2_Richards, is structured. It is an online course, but I spend more time exercising than sitting in front of a computer. The online course provides a lot of information in small intervals which makes it easier for me to remember. I love how open-ended the fitness logs are. I can choose my own exercises, so I can do the exercises I love, not the exercises the course chooses for me.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life? Carone Learning has taught me a lot about fitness. For someone considering studying medicine, knowing the many things Fitness Fundamentals 2 taught me is useful, regardless of medical specialty.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness? I cannot begin to describe how my fitness level has changed. At the beginning of the school year, this Pillsbury dough-girl could barely run a few feet down the road without being winded. Now, my muscles are much stronger, making it easier to complete tasks involving heavy lifting. I have always been “chubby,” but not anymore. A funny story regarding the effectiveness of the exercise in this course: I found a skirt I bought almost four years ago. Back then, it wrapped around my waist and held on very tightly. Now, after four years and a growth spurt, when I put on the skirt, it slides loosely down to my hips.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals? My fitness instructor, Mrs. Heidi Richards, has been very helpful in my course. She offers feedback on subjects that help make my workouts not only more effective but fun. It is extremely helpful to have a teacher that understands how hard it can be to get outside and exercise when you live in a location with a lot of snow and wonderfully “warm” temperatures hanging in the negatives for a good chunk of the winter. Her cheerful attitude is part of what makes this course so enjoyable.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial? After doing some preliminary research, I signed up for this course to provide a more structured physical education class. I am completely homeschooled, so my physical education class was not very structured. My adult cousin mentioned that her physical education courses in school required exercise and a health course to form that part of her high school grade. Going into high school, it made some aspects of grading harder. It made better sense to use an online course like this one. Having a more structured physical education class made me have a sort of responsibility and want to excel like in my other classes.

Here’s what Lily’s teacher had to say about her: Lily has taken two courses with me and each time she’s been consistent in her work efforts and login activity. Her work is always well done and well thought out and organized, I appreciate that she puts 100% into everything she does. Lily has positively accepted teacher feedback throughout the course and follows through as best she can, such as continually working on her confidence with new workouts when she struggles performing them well. She’s been open to trying new and hard things as she and her companions have varied the workouts every few weeks. I truly believe has benefitted from these courses, both physically and mentally. She’s been a joy to work with these two semesters and look forward to seeing what she has yet to accomplish in the next several weeks.

Meet Josephine A. – Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Josie is currently taking Accelerated Comprehensive PE – a course which allows students to explore concepts involving personal fitness, team sports, dual sports, and individual and lifetime sports!

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course? I like that I can complete it at my own pace while still being able to have a pacing guide to give me an idea of when to turn things in.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life? I say accountability- it’s up to me to turn in my assignments, and it’s my responsibility to be prepared.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness? It’s helping me with endurance and strength exercises.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals? My instructor has been super flexible and understanding in answering any questions, and always checks in with us!

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial? I have hypermobile EDS, so I couldn’t take regular gym classes. Carone’s learning guide was much more helpful because I can exercise at my own pace without hurting myself.

Here’s what Josie’s teacher had to say about her: Josie has been an absolute pleasure to work with and always works her hardest to do well on her assignments and fitness. She is accepting of teacher feedback and suggestions in regards to her fitness logs and exercise routines, and is proactive in making progress with her workouts and goals. I’m pleased that she has been able to find exercises that she enjoys and work for her to get into an effective routine. She recognizes when her body is making progress and takes the initiative to increase the intensity and challenges to continue making progress towards her fitness and health goals. I also appreciate that Josie brings in personal experience to her assignments and discussions to broaden and solidify her understanding of the topics being introduced in the course.

Meet Sophia S. – Carone Learning Student of the Week!


Sophia is currently taking Fitness Fundamentals 2 – a course which allows students to discover new interests as they experiment with a variety of exercises in a non-competitive atmosphere.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course? What I loved most about my Fitness Fundamentals course is the workouts that we had to complete every week, especially the cardio, since it helped me feel more confident and strong.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life? Throughout my course, I have learned several interesting things about my body, things that can affect it, and the fundamentals of physical fitness.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness? My Carone Learning course has helped me increase my level of health and activity by helping me become stronger through weekly stretching, cardio, and strength training, which has been very fun to complete.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals? Ms. Richards has been very helpful by giving relevant feedback about my work and advice on my exercises from her own experiences.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial? Since I began doing online school, I had to have all the mandatory courses needed to get through high school, and fitness happened to be one of those courses. Therefore, I was enrolled in Carone Learning and have been enjoying the coursework ever since. The exercises and weekly fitness logs have been very beneficial for my health and have helped me feel more confident about myself.

Here’s what Kate’s teacher had to say about her: I would recommend using Carone Learning as a physical fitness program since it has so much to offer and is very beneficial for one’s health.

Meet Kate N. – Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Kate is taking Fitness Fundamentals 2 – her second course with Carone Learning!

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course? I enjoy that my Carone Learning course not only provides motivation to exercise but also teaches me how to live a healthy life with lessons on goal-setting, proper nutritional values, how to exercise safely and properly, and much more. It offers engaging lessons that allow me to interact with other students and fun activities that help solidify the information presented.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life? My Carone Fitness course taught me healthy habits that I can apply to my life and how to find enjoyable activities that benefit my body and motivate me to keep exercising.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness? My Carone Fitness course taught me that exercise can be both fun and beneficial. It also taught me how to set realistic goals that I can work towards.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals? My instructor has helped me extensively in my course. She is constantly giving me valuable feedback on my work. Her feedback helps me find areas where I can improve and where I am doing well.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial? Since I am homeschooled, I use my current Carone Fitness course as my P.E. class. I would highly recommend Carone Fitness if you want to take an online P.E. or fitness course. Carone’s courses give assignments and criteria you must fulfill for the week, but you can be creative when fulfilling them. You are not restricted to a tight schedule, and you can work in a way that is specific to you. For example, a criterium for the week requires x minutes of cardiovascular training. My course allows me to choose what specific cardiovascular activity–dance, running, or combat, for example–I use to fulfill the criterium, as well as the ability to exceed the minimum requirement.

Here’s what Kate’s teacher had to say about her: Kate has taken two courses with me and each time she’s been consistent in her work efforts and login activity. Her work is always high quality and I really appreciate that she goes the extra mile with her research on topics of interest, as well as the detailed thought put into her responses. Kate has been responsive to teacher feedback throughout the course and constantly tries to make improvements as needed. She’s been open to trying new and hard things and I think has really benefitted from these courses, both physically and mentally. She’s been a joy to work with these past semesters.
