This class features functional training, strength/cardio moves that utilize multiple muscle groups at a time (think CrossFit).  This type of training is very individualized, so each student will work at his or her own level and pace.  Classmates will be required to encourage each other and do their best. 

Each student will be required to complete two projects approved by me during the year.  Some of these include: any triathlon (including the Lake Harriet one), an act in the kinesthetics assembly, creating a healthy snack for everyone in class, signing up for and training for the Mpls Spartan Sprint in June, leading the class in a 45-minute athletic activity, or writing a 5-page paper about a health topic I approve.

Students need athletic shoes for class.
