Course Information. Please read carefully:

PE 202 was completely designed to be done online so you can work out and learn on your own time!
The course will utilize CCSF's Insight online course interface which is a standardized online format for teaching and learning online.
Interactive Fitness is an online fitness course with online assignments, testing, and discussion.
You will learn how to improve fitness utilizing pulse/heart rate monitoring, strength training and nutrition.
You will learn how to create a balanced life long exercise program training both the cardiovascular and strength systems.

The course is not a self paced course. It is important that students stay up to date with each new weekly released teaching mudule
as the discussions and tasks will move right along.
Instructor to student contact will be through the course's built in forums, assignment feedback and external email (
It is expected that discussions and assignments be submited by the posted module's due date. However, discussions and assignments
may be submitted after the deadline but may not be read or commented on by the instructor until time permits. 
Therefore, it is very important to stay up to date and submit by the due date.

After enrolling, your name will be on my master list in which near the beginning of the semester you will be notified (via your CCSF student gmail) additional course information.
