Meet Nathan R. Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Nathan really enjoyed being in his walking course. He appreciated the ability to do assignments at his own pace, but also the fitness requirement that helped him stay on track with fitness logs and stick to a routine. He wishes more people realized the connection that physical health has on mental health!

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course? I really appreciate the ability to go at your own pace. I was able to choose when I wanted to walk every day, which was really nice. The deadlines weren’t as strict as they are at school, which gave me some needed flexibility.

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. It may not seem like physical activity and mental health are connected, but they’re very related. That’s something I wish more people knew.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness? I started this course with absolutely no workout routine. 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.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals? Mrs. Kooyman has been SO encouraging to all of us in the class! 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. Sometimes, she would email me privately and let me know that she appreciated something I turned in. I’ve genuinely loved having her as a 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 I needed to fulfill the other half of my high school’s required athletics credit. Taking this course has helped me create a daily walking routine that I desperately needed, and I’m so grateful.

Here’s what Nathan’s teacher had to say about him: “Nathan came into this class with a great attitude and desire to grow. It’s been a pleasure to follow his progress and see that he has surpassed the fitness goals he set at the beginning of the course. Great job Nathan!”
