These resources can help your students build an understanding of why we eat and what foods we should consume to improve physical well-being and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Make sure to watch the video to find out what top athletes and coaches consider in their diet, and why beetroot is one of David Weir’s power foods.
Welcome to the LifeDojo “Exercise Lifestyle” class! Spring has arrived… and with it, the compelling sense that we need to get outside, run, work out, and work off the winter gut! We at LifeDojo have the same feeling… gotta fit into our swimsuits come June! Instead of spending $$$ on a gym, or guilt-tripping yourself into running 10 miles on day one (only to give up a week later); take the time to watch these videos. Science shows us we will fail, unless we get smart about Exercise as a long-term lifestyle. Over the next 45 days, we will be releasing “episodes” of this class twice a week. By the end of this class, you will: – Learn about the physical, mental & emotional benefits of exercising. – Learn about the history of exercise, from 10,000 B.C. through to today. – Learn the story of today’s current crisis of inactivity...
Ever wonder just how important Exercise is to your physical health? In this episode of the LifeDojo’s “Exercise Lifestyle” class, you’ll learn it’s much more than just losing weight! @LifeDojo – The world’s first online Life Skills Academy – www.lifedojo.com
This is a resource that lays out at least a 2 hour lesson based on the Olympic velodrome races. It was planned by a member of my team and has been tried and tested by three of us now and the kids love it! Teamwork, task roles and literacy all built in. You do need bikes though!
PE Scholar is delighted to announce that starting from January 2013, FlipGym pocket workout cards will now be available to purchase directly from the PE Scholar store.
FlipGym cards are ideal for educational use as they can be used to inform planning for health related exercise (HRE) or fitness schemes of work or unit plans, assist with the delivery of HRE or fitness lessons as a teaching or learning resource and can be used to help facilitate opportunities for students to become independent learners within lessons or for guidance when planning their own fitness training programme at the gym, at home or within GCSE PE or BTEC Sport.
This project takes about a day or two to complete. Its a step by step worksheet that the student can do on their own. I incorporated the Body Mass Index (BMI) which, in my mind, is not a valid way for a student to look at their fitness or health. The BMI is good for a quick and average way to assess a person's health. I believe that the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) can help a student assess their own fitness/activity level and food intake based on their gender, caloric intake and activity. I have had several students in the past that have lost weight just by calculating their calories without changing their activity and visa-versa, where I have had student athletes maximize their caloric intake based on their activity output. It brings kinesiology into the classroom and student's enjoy the findings based on their levels.
