CONDITIONING: HEALTH AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY SERIES
Author(s): Florida, U of (Health)
Students work to increase all of the health related components of physical fitness through a variety of interactive components of the course. These interactive components include health calculators, a hyperlinked glossary and videos demonstrating stretches and conditioning exercises. The academic portion of the CD applies the principles of exercise physiology and exercise psychology to the exercise programs demonstrated.
The Health and Physical Activity Series' aim is to provide course material in CD format for popular sport and fitness classes. The CD format was chosen to take advantage of modern technology and allow new and stimulating interactive features. The first two CDs in the series are Aerobics and Conditioning.
The CDs are designed to act as a text or reference for educational sport and fitness classes. Similar to a text, they contain all background and academic material necessary to successfully participate in a sport and fitness class.
However, the series goes one step further by offering interactive features and video demonstrations that enable students to better grasp and attain key concepts and skills.
