Physical Aptitude Class

Strength & Endurance Workouts!


Course/Class Description

This course is designed to concentrate on an individual's Health & Skill Related Fitness. Fitness is a condition in which an individual has sufficient energy to avoid fatigue while enjoying life. It is divided into four health and six skill-related components. Skill or performance related fitness involves skills that will enhance one's performance in athletic or sports events. Health-related fitness involves skills that enable one to become and stay physically healthy. As opposed to holding online group sessions where an individual's performance and execution of specific exercises could easily be overlooked, our classroom environment makes sure coaches can pay attention to individual progress. This course can be very demanding and will exponentially increase in difficulty very quickly by means of assignments and assessments.

Course Goals

Our goals are to make students aware of the differences between: – 

 Health Components  Skill Components
  1. Cardiovascular Fitness
  2. Muscular Strength and Endurance
  3. Flexibility
  4. Body Composition
  • Agility
  • Balance
  • Coordination
  • Speed
  • Power
  • Reaction Time

More commonly known as ABC's where skilled athletes typically excel in. Often, these drills and exercises are not given the attention that they should be for many reasons. However, our students will be able to identify the difference and be fully aware of how they are applicable in practically all physical endeavors. Thus, promoting physical aptitude and individual awareness of their own fitness development.

Student Learning Objectives/Outcomes

Students/participants will be able to perform various tasks/exercises and skills to a high level of proficiency while enhancing their four health component fitness levels and most of the skill fitness components. Motivation and self-drive will be a huge factor in aiding completion of assignments the more student's progress.

Course Grading Overview

The grading is designed to be simple to follow and participate in. An example of how the course is weighted is as follows.

  • Assessments: 20%
  • Assignments: 80%

In addition, we have applied a grading scale that centers around a "Rubric" that looks not just at completing the assignments but how well or adept the participants are at completing them.

Schedule of Activities

Assignments are designed to be easily completed with just everyday household objects if any in a limited amount of space, assigned weekly in accordance with the syllabus, only moving forward on successful completion with a passing grade as per "Rubric".

These assignments are to be completed for the most part by the student recording themselves (with either a mobile device or webcam) performing the assignment and turning it in for grading at their convenience within a set time frame.

Assessments are carried out on a one-to-one online session basis at random intervals throughout the course's duration, where students are pressure tested to demonstrate a skill acquirement to encourage practice. Assignments and assessments are expected to range from 60 seconds to 30 minutes as students advance through the syllabus.

Materials List

Content for assignment and assessments will be provided through the classroom in the form of documentation, images and video, or links to such materials. Students/participants will be expected to thoroughly practice the prescribed drills in the assignment in order to aid turning in a meritorious piece.
