Carone Fitness is a curriculum development company. We offer online health and PE courses for grades 6-12. “Online PE?” you might be thinking. Yes, it’s true! We realize that it may sound like an oxymoron, but it is not just a virtual workout!
Taking PE online is a good alternative for many students, and actually provides some great benefits. Students can view lessons that provide health and fitness information, participate in online class discussions about health & fitness topics, assess their own levels of fitness, design their own exercise programs, and keep strict logs of their workouts.
Here are some of the benefits:
- Students focus on their OWN level of fitness and try to improve themselves. They are not comparing themselves or being compared to others. It is truly personalized fitness!
- Students can choose physical activities they enjoy! By doing something they enjoy, they are more likely to stick with their exercise program long term.
- Students must create their own workout schedules–figuring when, where, and how they are going to exercise. This sets them up for the “real world” where they also have to figure out how to incorporate health and fitness around work, family, and other activities.
- Students are learning the principles and guidelines behind fitness, not just the rules of a game; thus empowering them with the knowledge they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle long after class is over!
