Students learn to adopt a holistic approach to physical fitness, evaluate physical activity daily routine, focusing on self-management skills, learning to count exercise expenditure, exercising to manage stress by PA, and building special consumer skills such as selecting a fitness club or evaluating a fitness program. Computer fitness programs and special equipment (sport tester, pedometer, actigraph,?) aid students in the classes.
