Meet Alyson H.! Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Alyson H.!  Alyson was enrolled in Medical Terminology with us. She plans to become a radiology technician and wanted to learn more before entering that field. She was able to enroll in our course and learn information that her school doesn’t offer. 

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

What I liked most about The Medical Terminology course was that the course was very easy to navigate. It is also important to me to be able to progress through the assignments at my own pace.

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

I want to work in the medical field as a radiology technician. This course gives me knowledge in the medical field that are not available in my school.

 

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

My instructor helped me throughout the course by sending me emails about progress reports. My teacher also answered all of my questions that I had for her about assignments.

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 felt like it was very important to get to know about the human body. This class was beneficial to me because I felt like I advanced my understanding of the human body. I also think that this class was beneficial because my high school doesn’t have any medical classes to take.

 

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

“Throughout the course, Alyson has shown a desire to learn. I appreciate how she takes responsibility for her own learning. She reaches out when she has questions and follows through with action. ”

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

Meet Aditya M.! Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Aditya M.!  He loved the opportunity to constantly improve his fitness and learn about his body in relation to fitness! He also learned how to be accountable to himself for his workouts.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

I like that it’s so extensive and broad. I get to constantly improve and learn!

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

I have learned how to keep myself accountable for my workouts.

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

I am slowly increasing my strength

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

She has also kept me accountable 🙂

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

I wanted to take a PE course on my own terms and do activities that I enjoyed

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

“He has taken two courses with us and has continued to work hard and submit high quality work. He’s made great progress with his health and fitness goals over the last several months and continues to set new goals. He has also shown that he’s incorporated the information from the course in his routines to improve them and himself.”

In Aditya’s Advanced PE 2 they discussed routine vs variety and what the benefits of each are as well as the differences in seeing results. Here is Aditya’s response: 

“There are many benefits to both having a set routine and trying a variety of workouts. With a routine, it’s is possible to see steady, incremental improvements in performance. Also, as Joyce has noticed, it is sometimes easier to keep up with a regular fitness routine since we are creatures of habit. However, doing the same exercises over and over again, can leave our muscles adapted to these specific exercises. Thus, sometimes trying a variety of workouts (like Rita does) can help prevent this muscular adaptation. I think consistency is more important to see results, so I think having a set routine would be better. It will allow to get stronger over time and see improvements. However, to prevent muscular adaptation, it’s useful to at least switch up your routine sometimes. ”

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

Response: “Billy’s family can add a battery-powered radio, a flashlight, and a first aid kit. Of course, if possible it would be nice to have extra batteries too. The radio would be important to hear any news that may be important to the safety of his family. A flashlight would be vital if it is dark or there is no power at the time. The first aid kit would be vital if a family member gets injured, they have the supplies to correctly tend to the wound. The could plan that in an event of a flood, where they all would go, proceeding they cannot go home. They also might want to consider getting flood insurance, just in case a flood would damage their home.”

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

“The area of fitness that I feel I am strongest in is flexibility. The area that I think is my weakest is cardio. I think my overall flexibility is a 7 or 8. I believe this because I am quite flexible. I love stretching I do it everyday, and because I did gymnastics for a period of time I have gained quite a bit of flexibility. One thing I want to gain from this course is an increase in my cardio ability. I struggle with it because of always having health issues that prevent me from doing well at it. I’d love to be able to strengthen my body enough to become better at it.”

Meet Alexa M.! Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Alexa M.!  Alexa was enrolled in our Credit Recovery PE course where she enjoyed making up her own workout and executing it at a time that worked for her. She also liked learned to be over all fitness with a combination of physical fitness and good nutrition habits.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

I liked being able to do this course online and work at my own pace. I liked being able to make up my own workout for the class. In a traditional PE class you have to do the exercises the teacher wants, this way is so much better since you can do things you enjoy.

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

I learned a lot about being overall fit and it’s a combination of fitness and nutrition.

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

I am thin and petite but wasn’t fit. Having to turn in a log each week make you feel accountable for your workouts. I’ve been able to work out with my mom, which has been fun and improve my overall fitness.

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

I liked getting emails and having her check in with me. Made me feel like they cared about my progress.

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

I wanted to complete my PE outside of my in person school course. We found this course and it was exactly what we were looking for. It’s been great managing my time and doing the work at my pace.

Please share any other comments you have about cFitness Academy or your Carone Learning Course.

It was great! A lot of work but it was worth it!

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

“She has been on top of her assignments and kept up with the quick pacing in this course. I’ve also been impressed with her desire to improve and try new exercise routines each week throughout the semester. She really has put some thought into this and I have appreciated her diligence and making the effort to find things she enjoys to make exercise a lifelong habit. Her other assignments have also been thorough and well thought out.”

In Alexa’s Credit Recovery PE course they are asked to discuss road blocks in fitness programs. Here is her response:

“1. I think a lot of people set themselves up for failure before they even start an exercise program. They don’t set realistic goals for themselves, then can feel defeated when they are not making the progress they expect, so they give up. I also feel that you can go wrong in assuming fitness is one dimensional. Fitness programs require both property nutrition and a fitness plan that is easy to maintain based on your fitness level. You cant expect to become fit when you are only exercising and not following a healthy diet. With a new program you can get sore and this can also make it hard to want to work out more 2. Some road block can be motivation, lack of accountability and a busy life that may not always allow for time to workout.”

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