Catalog Description:
Untitled document
The focus of this course is intermediate level step training, an aerobic activity incorporating a platform and sometimes with risers, designed to increase cardiovascular/respiratory fitness and improve muscular strength and endurance.  Intermediate step patterns and movement combinations choreographed to music will be presented. Activities may include other forms of aerobic exercise, muscular endurance, core work, and flexibility training.

COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
1. Demonstrate proper intermediate step patterns and techniques in response to cueing while sustaining an optimal exercise heart rate for cardiovascular conditioning.
2. Demonstrate proper stretching, endurance, and strengthening exercises and identify the muscle or muscle group used for each exercise.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
Students will be able to:
1. Define and explain basic principles of physical fitness.
2. Assess perceived levels of exertion during aerobic activities.
3. Calculate and monitor exercise heart rate.
4. Perform safe and continuous intermediate level step patterns choreographed to music for
    20-45 minutes.
5. Demonstrate knowledge of basic and intermediate step patterns by responding to cueing by
    the instructor.
6. Perform safe and effective strengthening and stretching exercises.
7. Identify working muscles by name and identify exercises that use that muscle or muscle
    group.
8. Discuss basic nutritional concepts relevant to aerobic exercise.
