My best experience here at Roanoke Valley Early College has been the Fitness Club with Mrs. Lee-Easter. At the school that I came from we didn’t exercise or go outside often. We had gym class but it was not like Fitness Club. In Fitness Club we get to exercise, get fit, and have fun all at the sametime.
Fitness is one of the most growing industries in the world. We see it everywhere at the stores, on our televisions, and all around us. We were taught in school that we need to stay fit and healthy or we would become fat and obese. Fitness is so big now because of our recent problems with obesity. The problem with trying to stay fit is it takes and a lot of people do not have time, so companies make workouts that take less than an hour. You look at these people and they are fit there are not heavy people, everybody get results. The sad thing is they were fit from something else and a company just told them to be in this video and we will pay you. The bad thing about the fitness is there are a lot of people that are dishonest and lie about how they got their body. The fitness
The section where I saw the most determination was while observing the cardio room. During my observations I noticed there was no social interaction whatsoever. People were just concentrated on doing their workout and getting the results that they were seeking. One example of this taking place was when I was observing a woman who looked about 30-40 years old. She had earphones on as she was doing her routine. She was wearing exercise appropriate
I like zombies. This year I’m going to be in the zombie run. In the zombie run you run two miles while being chased by zombies. If you get caught your out. The reason I want to be in the zombie run is because I need to be able to run for a long time for when the zombie apocalypse happens. I can already run for long times so I think I’ll do fine. My friends are going to do the zombie chase. The zombie chase is where you have to get the runners before they get to the finish line. There will be lots of other people there to trying to get me and the other runners. I'm already really fast so I’ll make it there in no time. The town we run in is one I know really well so I well do it rely fast.my main concern is to get away from the zombies
I mentioned earlier about how learning the basic techniques and drills against an unarmed attacker allows you to concentrate more on the techniques, your timing, your reflexes and spatial relationship to your training partner.
“In its present form, personal training only dates back a few decades, yet it is among the fastest growing professions in the U.S.” (Holt). In the 80’s and 90’s personal trainers were predominantly heavy lifters who looked like they could soon compete in a bodybuilding contest. The muscular physique automatically qualified each of them as “guru” in the fitness world and helped quickly build a clientele. Towards the late-90's, the situation started to change: gyms became less and less of an intimidating environment for a wide category of people with no desire to become “huge.” Personal trainers of a new generation expanded their specialization to weight loss, cardio vascular
I drag myself to the gym several times a week. The drive to Healthbridge is agonizing because most of time, especially in bone chilling weather and when I’m working thirty hours a week on top of school, I rather be curled up in bed reading or catching up on my latest Netflix addiction Shameless. But exercising is important, and I try to squeeze in a good workout in between the several other things sucking up my time. I’m a biomedical science major; I understand the science behind why exercise is good for the body, but I also have the common sense to understand that the way physical education is taught is not intense enough for students to benefit. For example, today we pulled each other around the gym on towel. . .what are the students getting
A world where patient zero has caused a zombie apocaplypse you are one of the remaining survivors who fight to survive in the chaotic world you rome. You will have to find food, water, weapons, and shelter to stay alive and keep fighting through massive hoards of zombies which will try to kill you with no mercy.

Working out can appeal to many different types of people. Various individuals have different motivations for visiting their local gym. I have found that just by observing people around me while working out, helps pass the time and distract me from my screaming muscles. In my observations I have determined there to be three different general types of people that spend time in the gym. Those types are: The Muscle Heads, the Average Joes and the Socials.
I really enjoyed this class due to the variety of activities that were assigned, and the people I was able to bond with. I would have to say that “Turbo Kick” was my favorite activity we did. Although I ended up spraining my ankle during the session, it was still a lot of fun. Another one of my favorite activities would be the free workout days at the corec. I felt like I could workout at my own pace, without holding anyone back. I also was able to work on cardio, strength, and endurance activities as many or as little as I wanted.
What makes group exercise classes the best choice for most people? There are several factors. The immediate benefit is that the cost is usually much less than that of one-on-one training. Those who cannot afford private classes can still take part in the group classes and reap the benefits of doing so.
In today’s busy world, it can be hard to find the time to even think about one’s fitness, let alone actually do anything to maintain it. The average person has school, work, family, pets, and many more distractions in their life to ensure their fitness is left on the backburner. However, when the thought of exercise does eventually enter their mind, the thought that often comes forefront is that of the gym. The concept of a gym is simple, populate a building with the necessary equipment for a variety of physical activities, attracting people who want to get that perfect body or even just get back in shape. However, many people who have never frequented a gym often come up with a plethora of reasons not to go.
