X21: Exercise and Nutrition in Splash 2010 (Apr. 03, 2010)
In this class I plan to cover a few things: How exercise and nutritional habits can prevent certain types of conditions How exercise and nutritional habits can benefit a person beyond simply preventing bad health conditions to arise Principles of good nutritional habits (this will be done in depth) Ways to eat healthily even if friends don't Ways to eat healthily even if it seems as though healthy foods are too expensive Principles of good exercise habits (this will be done in depth) Ways to exercise effectively even if time is short. Ways to exercise effectively even if one cannot afford to go to a gym. Strategies to immediately employ the knowledge gained from taking this class. My goal by the end of the class is for students to have written plans of action regarding changes they can make to improve their own exercise and nutritional habits. I will provide summaries of key points via handouts to all students.
