Meet Caleb T. Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Caleb was enrolled in Fitness Fundamentals with us because he didn’t have time in his school schedule.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals? She has sent me reminders to submit my assignments.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial? Because I needed a fitness class to show to my school. Taking this course online was beneficial since this unusual time could not hinder this class.

Here’s what Caleb’s teacher had to say about him: I have been particularly impressed with Caleb’s diligence in continually making an effort to get as much of his workouts in and to do a little better each week, even when it proved difficult and frustrating. He’s never given up and even was prepared to do more fitness logs than was required in the course. I appreciate his work ethic. In addition to his fitness logs his quality of work on his assignments has been great and he’s done well to stay on task and take the course seriously. So despite the fitness portion being a struggle Caleb has succeeded in this course and has just been a pleasure to work with as a student and I want to reward him for his efforts.

Meet Brooklyn A. Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Brooklyn really enjoyed what she learned in her Carone Learning course. Taking Exercise Science she learned about taking her heart rate properly and that there are many aspects to fitness that affect individuals differently.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course? I have loved the experience that Carone Learning has offered me this semester! I have beyond strengthened my knowledge in the exercise sciene field of education. I find the layout of the course super easy to adhere to and is very beneficial to my learning. I plan to major in exercise science/physical therapy in college, so I feel that this class has helped to further my education in preparation for that journey later in my life!

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life? I think that throughout the exercise science course, the basic skills that it has taught me how to preform will help me the most. An example would be how to take your heart rate or simple tasks like these. They may seem like common sense sometimes, but they are crucial information to know!

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness? I feel that this Carone Learning course has made a humongous difference on how I view physical fitness. It has shown me that everyone is different and not every physical activity will be beneficial for everyone. It has also shown me that so much more plays into physical fitness than just working out. It is about so much more, such as nutrition, sleep, and mental wellness!

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals? I have always felt so supported by my instructor, Anne Kooyman! I am a completely virtual student this school year due to the covid-19 pandemic and I know that as sad as it is, the virtual teachers often look at their virtual students work as a second job that can be done whenever they get around to it. I know that teachers are very busy with one job, so two is surely a handful! With this being said, I have never felt this way with my instructor for this course. If I have questions, she always answers me within hours! I have loved having such an amazing instructor this semester and couldn’t have asked for anything more!

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 online because I am working to educate myself in the medical field as much as possible before heading off to college! I feel that if I can get a head start on the information, it will already be familiar and take some of the stress of college off of my shoulders initially! I found this to be very beneficial personally because I thought this was a very well set up class to learn in an online setting without making it too complex, but still challenging!

Please share any other comments you have about CFitness Academy or your Carone Learning course: Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed taking this course this semester and loved how Carone Learning presented the class! I hope to take more classes through Carone Learning in the future!

Here’s what Brooklyn’s teacher had to say about her: “Brooklyn has done a fantastic job in Exercise Science. She reaches out when she has questions and consistently turns in great work. Great job Brooklyn!” – Mrs. Kooyman

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life? Getting up and walking every day is truly rewarding, especially for mental health.

Now that it’s over, I’m walking almost an hour every day. This course has been so good for my body and my routine, especially with everything shut down right now.

She always responds to our work with feedback that makes us proud of what we’re doing. She responds to my logs with tips about exercising in the heat and avoiding soreness.

I would definitely recommend it to a friend, and the reason I am better at yoga and do more exercise is because I was encouraged to during this course. This was really good for me- and I feel better, and stronger from taking this course.

Here’s what Kiana’s teacher had to say about her: “Kiana has been highly dedicated to her course and coursework, but more importantly to me she has shown a desire to learn more about the course materials and how it relates to her. She reaches out to me (the instructor) regularly to ask questions, not only in regards to the assignments, but to ask for further information and knowledge on health and fitness aspects that specifically relate to her and her family. Not only has been been an absolute pleasure of a student and does well in her work, I have truly looked forward to her almost weekly emails with questions about subjects she longs to better understand or learn. She has gone above and beyond, in my opinion.”
