delivered online while the other portions of the course are conducted face-to-face (i.e., lab). This course will
provide you with an introductory background of the five components of fitness: cardiorespiratory, muscular
strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition. You will be exposed to various exercise
modalities and training techniques. In addition, you will develop the skills to assess each component of
