2. This website can be easily used to meet learning standard 1b. Standard 1b is all about creating a personal fitness plan. This program is designed to help one do exactly that. Great for both the physical education and health classrooms. One can have the students check out the sight, sign up during either class period or a homework assignment. Students can then use the program track their diet, workouts, weight, etc. for a week. Then analyze the results, and create a fitness plan according to their personal needs. The class can even sign up as a group, to set a group goal, a great motivator! Besides the class group, they are also able to join other groups that may pertain to their personal interests such as running, music, etc. Individual goals can be modified as well. You can teach by invitation, inviting them to try to improve their weight if they feel the need to do that, strength, cardio vascular endurance, balanced nutrition, etc. Tell the students to design a fitness plan that will aid them to improve in the area they feel they need to most.
