Course requirements: 75 percent of the Fitness Center grade is based on participation; 100 minutes of participation per week is required during a 16-week class, 200 minutes a week is required for an eight-week class.

Fitness Center students must pre-test at one of several orientation sessions scheduled during the first week of class. Returning students must pre-test during a scheduled orientation session. Those who fail to meet this requirement are dropped from the course.

Orientation schedules are available in the Fitness Center.

Twenty-five percent of a student’s grade is based on improvement and goal attainment. A required pre- and post-test consisting of five standardized fitness tests is administered to determine this portion of the grade.
