Physical Education & Fit Living

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!

Meet Jessica S.! Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Jessica S.!  Jessica was enrolled in Intro to Nursing and our Drugs and Alcohol course. She learned a lot about herself and how to handle online courses. She did some career exploration and was able to rule out a career she thought she wanted to pursue.  She was glad to have the opportunity to take these courses.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

What I like learning the most is the lessons. Some day I feel as if I’m into it but some days I’m really into it. Learning these topics are actually educational to me.

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

All drugs over the counter or sometime prescribed by doctors may or may not work. Also I took up great things in nursing also.

 

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

“Jessica first took Nursing and is now in Drugs and Alcohol, I enjoyed watching her improvement and determination while working through the courses.”

 

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

Meet Erika L.! Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Erika L.!  Erika was enrolled in Advanced PE 2. She has really appreciated the motivation the course provided to work out, learning that if you make exercising a priority you will have time for it, and  improving her strength.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

The motivation it gives me to work out.

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

That I enjoy exercise and if you make it a priority you will have time for it.

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

It has helped me do different exercises that I would not have done otherwise and it has really helped with my strength.

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

By giving advice and encouragement.

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

I signed up to get a credit, and now I really enjoy exercise and plan to continue exercise after this course is finished.

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 Erika’s teacher had to say about her: 

“Erika has been diligent in logging in regularly and submitting excellent work, even amongst a busy school schedule. This semester is hard on everyone, but I’ve been impressed with her ability to keep up with the pacing guide while still providing quality work. She also communicates well when she has questions or concerns about assignments or the course in general. Erika’s fitness routines have been wonderful, but she’s even been open to constructive criticism and attempted to make a few changes to improve her routines and make sure she’s meeting all the requirements for the course.”

In Erika’s Advanced PE 2 course she had the opportunity to discuss with other students the pros and cons of routine exercise vs. variety in exercise. Here is her response:

“I think routine is good because it makes exercise become natural. Even if it is a lazy day and you do nothing else, your routine will have kicked in and you will have still exercised. Routine exercise can make you more productive during your day before you even realize it. On the other side variety is good. Variety will get you into the habit of exercising different things, it will continue to push you in many different aspects. You can change up what you are doing, make it more original and hopefully more fun to try something different. I think that they are both important. I think you need to have at least some sort of routine that you always do, but I also believe that it is good to add some new things into your exercise so that it does not become too redundant.”

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

Meet Brooklyn W.! Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Brooklyn W.!  Brooklyn was enrolled in physiology with us. She really appreciated the communication and support she had from her teacher. Brooklyn was also really excited to learn information to help improve her health as well as others’ as she works to pursue her upcoming career in nursing.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

This course is a very good learning experience for students interested in exploring their education in physiology. I like that the teacher is very helpful and very responsive to emails. The course is very well organized

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

I have learned a lot of terminology that will better help prepare me for my upcoming nursing career.

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

I now know what is most healthy for my body and how much exercise I should be getting each week. My health is very important to watch and pay attention to what foods I eat. It’s taught me to exercise and what exercises are healthy for my body

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

My instructor, Jessica Shumway, is a great teacher. Any questions or concerns I have she always answers emails fast and explains each question I have. She sends me updates each week to let me know how I am doing. She’s helped me have more self confidence. I would like to thank her for being such a great teacher.

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

I signed up because my guidance counselor recommended it since I will be attending nursing school. It’s been beneficial to me learn more about anatomy and physiology and the differences between the two.

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

This class was wonderful and very well organized. I would recommend anyone taking the course to help better their knowledge in any subject. My teacher was great help and even made her phone number available so I could reach her anytime. I learned so much from this class and I’m so happy I took it.

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

“Brooklyn is a wonderful student who submits work that has been carefully thought out and heartfelt. The quality is outstanding. She has stayed on pace or ahead throughout the course and is easy to communicate with.”

In Brooklyn’s physiology class she was asked to discuss how to talk with people that might have difficulty, in one way or another, speaking. There was also a follow up question to think about how difficult it would be for you to have troubles speaking. Brooklyn was very thoughtful with her response:

People who have a difficult time getting their words out are just as intelligent as people who don’t. It’s important to have good eye contact and wait patiently for them to finish speaking. I would make sure the person felt comfortable and didn’t feel ashamed to talk. If I couldn’t understand them they could write me little notes so I could understand them better. It’s important to have a positive attitude and good communication skills. The person needs to feel as if you are taking them seriously and even encouraging them to better their speaking skills. It would be very difficult for me if I couldn’t talk because I love to talk and I’m a very outgoing person. My anxiety would be hardest for me because I would struggle with what other people thought of me when I spoke. I would struggle because I like to express how I feel about situations and communicate with people around me. If I couldn’t speak I would find new ways to express myself and become more confident with myself.

 

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

Meet Blaize F.! Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Blaize F.!  Blaize took First Aid & Safety through Carone Learning and is now more confident in being able to help others should an injury or possibly emergency arise. He really appreciated the flexibility of the course and how much his instructor helped him.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

The thing I like most about the class is the flexibility as well as the personal assistance from the instructor.

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

Unfortunately, people will always get hurt. This course has given me the skills to attend to various injuries or incidents and possibly save a life.

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

I am now more aware of and in tune with how to care for myself and others.

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

She assisted with technological issues that arose during the course as well as helping me with setting goals and attaining them.

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

Because I would like to pursue a career in health care, this course allowed me to learn basic first aid. Taking the course has been beneficial in that it allowed me to learn at my own pace and re-enact / practice life altering scenarios.

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

“Blaize really showed improvement in First Aid and Safety. He had fallen behind and I wasn’t sure he would be able to finish in time. With lots of communication, he was able to back a complete comeback, complete his course on time and even received an A. Great work Blaize! Blaize broke both his legs a little while ago and his mother mentioned that he has worked really hard to rehabilitate. I see a very hard working young man who is motivated to succeed, even if he needed a little push at the beginning!”

In Blaize’s First Aid class he was asked to create a brochure on how, in his local area he can learn more about first aid and safety, by researching community resources. Blaize was very through with the information for several different resources: 

 

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

Meet Molly B.! Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Molly B.!  Molly enjoyed being in both fitness basics 1 and 2! She liked how she was able to work the courses into her already set schedule instead of creating a new schedule to fit the courses into. She also enjoyed setting and working toward specific goals to benefit her body.

 

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

The thing I like most about the Carone Learning course would be how it has me set goals and see how I do the next time I preform them. I have always been very competitive with myself and the goals I set help me look at them, wanting to improve for the benefit of my body.

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

The Carone Learning course has taught me to balance myself with exercise. For example I have always considered myself good at athletics, but I didn’t always stretch before and after I exercise which is important for my muscles. I also learned about better ways to eat so my body can get the right proteins and fibers so it can do the work it has to.

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

I have increased my level of stretching before and after my workouts at swim. This has helped with my flexibility and my muscles are less sore.

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

My cFitness Academy instructor has helped me with everything. Whenever I asked for further information she has responded with more information than I expected to receive. She has been very supportive.

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

I signed up for a course online because I am a Junior Olympic Swimmer, and opted out of the on campus PE course. I did not need to add more psychical activity to my day, and this class allows more time for homework in my daily schedule. Carone fitness has allowed me to work on time management and balance my schedule.

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

“Molly is a diligent worker, both in her courses and her fitness. I’ve now had her in two courses and in both her assignments are always high quality, her comments and reflections well thought out, and her fitness routines, while consistent due to being on a swim team, are always improving in some way. She sets realistic but challenging goals for herself and works hard to achieve them. I also have greatly appreciated her willingness to learn and better understand the material she studies in these courses. We’ve had great conversations about various topics and it’s always a pleasure to help her better understand them. It’s particularly inspiring that she is already making plans to stay active however she can while she is injured and cannot do much on her feet because she enjoys it so much. What a great example!”

In Molly’s Fitness Basics 2 class there is an opportunity to discuss how a fitness assessment can help you improve your health here is her response:

“A fitness assessment can help you improve your fitness because it has multiple tests in it. It can’t just take one thing to see your overall fitness level. It can also show you how you improved or didn’t over time so you can get better at it. I would like to improve on my muscular endurance because sometimes for example when I am doing something like pushups, I have trouble doing them repeatedly once it gets past around twenty or so.  ”

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

Meet Hannah N.! Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Hannah N.!  Hannah needed to take an online class and liked the idea of improving her first aid skills. She signed up to take First Aid & Safety. She is very happy with the increase of knowledge and skills that she has learned from this course.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

What I liked most about the course is how my instructor (Jessica Shumway) helped me and answered questions whenever I needed her.

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

I have learned how to perform First Aid care.

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

I have improved my level of comprehension in first aid. I have also improved my first aid care skills.

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

My instructor helped me by answering any questions or concerns I had. And responded very quickly.

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

I took this class, because I needed a class to take and I liked the idea of first aid and I am glad that I chose to take this course. Taking this course was beneficial to me by helping me learn first aid care and skills.

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

“Hannah has been an exemplary student who is ahead of pace in her course and almost done! Hannah is easy to communicate with and always provides well thought out responses to discussion and reflection questions. She was also able to demonstrate proficient first aid skills on the video assignments.”

In Hannah’s First Aid class there is an opportunity to discuss how health is your own responsibility and give examples of the healthy habits she has to prevent illness and remain healthy:

Your health is ultimately your responsibility. What are three habits you have that help you prevent illness and keep yourself healthy?

“The three habits that I have are, I go to the gym and workout, I am losing weight, and I am eating healthier. Working out at the gym is the best stress reliever for me. I feel better when I eat healthier and lose weight. The more weight I lose the better I feel. Losing weight comes easy to some people, but we are all human and we mess up sometimes. For example, when I get stressed over a class at school, all I do is worrying about the class and eat junk food.  But, I am trying to push myself more to get back to eating better, exercising, and losing more weight. ”

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

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

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Bradford H.!  Bradford has enjoyed the opportunity to take an online course that he is interested in exploring for future career opportunities. His school wasn’t able to provide an Exercise Science course, so he was happy to be able to have an online course to help him explore his interests. 

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

I like the design of the page and how easy it is to access your assignments and lessons on multiple formats.

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

I am going on to a possible Exercise Physiology major, so everything that I am learning in this course will help me in the future.

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

I am learning new things that I did not know factored into overall health that I did not previously worry about such as flexibility and mental health.

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

My instructor gave me a great deal of information at the start of my course, and has encouraged me to do well in the course and the goals I have set myself for the course.

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

I signed up for my course because it was not provided by my school, and taking this course online has been beneficial because it has given me a chance to see if exercise science is something I am really interested in, as well as letting me see what online classes are like.

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

“Bradford (BJ) has a fantastic start in his Exercise Science course. His discussions have been thoughtful and he has excelled on his exams and quizzes thus far.”

In Bradford’s Exercise Science class there is an opportunity to discuss if technology has had a positive or negative impact on fitness in America. Here is Bradford’s response:

“Personally, I believe that technology has positively impacted fitness in America. It has led to the invention of devices that make it easier for the common person to get started exercising. Examples of these devices include fitness watches, cardio equipment with screens showing data that includes the amount of calories you have burned, and online access to personal trainers and fitness programs. Technological advancements have also allowed for better ways of studying exercise and fitness. Researchers can easily communicate their findings with one another, and using data coming from the inventions mentioned above give them more in depth data coming from a wider range of people to study. All of this has been available through technological advancements, so I would have to say that technology has been a positive thing for fitness in America.”

 

 

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