Meet Julia L. Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Julia took Advanced PE 1 through Carone Learning she has enjoyed expanding her knowledge, and working on all areas of physical fitness to help her as a track athlete. She has enjoyed the course content, earning high school credit and working at her own pace.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course? I love the freedom it gives me to learn and work at my own pace. I also love seeing other students’ comments from all across the world- it is really amazing to make connections with people in completely different countries!

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life? I’ve learned a lot about balance in exercise, and taking a full-body approach to fitness and wellness. I think that is incredibly important, and is so healthy in the long-run!

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness? I have been encouraged to try different fitness activities, and to break out of my usual workout schedule, pushing myself, and listening to my body. I have loved trying new things, and taking a new approach to fitness.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals? Ms. Heidi has been very helpful in helping me meet my goals, and I am grateful for all of her insight!

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 to fulfill my graduation requirements for high school, and I have learned so much from this course.

Please share any other comments you have about cFitness Academy or your Carone Learning course: I have loved this course so far, and I’m glad I am fulfilling my credit requirements, while learning something new- all at my own pace.

Here’s what Julia’s teacher had to say about her:
Julia is always providing great quality work in all of her assignments. She is continually on schedule and makes sure to respond quickly to any check ins or questions that I might have. She has been dealing with some setbacks in her routines recently but has consciously made an effort to change things up so that she can still be active and continue to meet her physical goals too, which I admire. – H. Richards

In a team huddle (where students share thoughts and ideas about a certain topic) Julia explained how her level of fitness for one area compares to another. Here is what she said: “I am a track athlete- so I feel like my physical fitness is very much specialized in cardio, and obviously my legs- however I do think it is consistent overall. I have noticed that my upper body is lacking in strength (as seen in my physical assessment, from my very poor demonstration of pushups). I make a large effort to condition my entire body, even though most of my workouts revolve around running. My daily workout regimen includes abs, and cross-training as well, with some swim workouts, and weighted leg workouts as well, but, as I am recovering from injury and I am naturally weaker in my arms, it is hard to devote as strong or specific of a workout to my upper body. There is a noticeable difference in intensity between my upper body training and my other training, but I think that because of my injuries, this is natural. I think that continuing my PT and keeping up with my (beginner!) arm exercises, my arms will grow stronger as they heal over time- and hopefully be on par with the rest of my body, soon.”
