Personal Wellness Syllabus
Mrs. Micheau’s Classroom Policies Personal Wellness
Class description: If you would like to try different activities that promote fitness, gain confidence in your abilities, love to exercise, and have a desire to be healthy, then this is the class for you.
This is an elective physical fitness class that will focus on different activities such as team games, weight training, Pilates, Yoga, aerobics/cardio, dance, walking/jogging, stretching, team games, and other activities. Various fitness videos will be utilized for the different activities as well instructor lead team games.
In this class we exercise. We will make some personal fitness and wellness goals and we will try to reach them. This class involves teamwork. Working with others is required and having good sportsmanship is extremely important. We will support each other in our wellness goals.
What will you need?
YOUR OWN PERSONAL FITNESS/YOGA MAT (Due to medical/health/hygiene concerns) OR You can use a school mat but you are REQUIRED to disinfect it daily (before and after use) with provided disinfectant and towels. Many microorganisms can be spread through shared fitness equipment.
Work out shoes, socks, workout clothing, towel/shower items, and deodorant will be needed daily!
Please plan on bringing more than one set of clothes for the week. You will be perspiring greatly in many of the workouts and need to wash your clothes and socks on a regular basis! Shoe powder/spray is also recommended on a regular basis.
You will need to lock up your items in your gym locker daily. DO NOT LEAVE phones, valuables, etc. unlocked. They will get stolen and the school is not responsible. You will be provided a lock if you do not have one.
To prevent common skin infections and illnesses that is known to be spread in public please:
Wash your hands
Shower after each workout
DO NOT share towels
Wear flip flops/shoes in locker room and shower.
Wash your workout mat and workout equipment with disinfectant before and after use.
Wear clean and dry clothing
COVER all cuts, sores, etc. with bandages/gauze, etc.
You will receive a zero for any days you do not participate. A call home will be made after your third zero/no participation.
A note from a health care provider excusing you from activity is required for an excused no dress. This will NOT negatively affect your grade.
You are expected to be on time, dress properly, participate in ALL activities with your best effort, and have a positive attitude. If you come to class whining because we are exercising this will negatively affect your grade. Your attitude does affect effort and performance.
You are expected to disinfect your weights and mat when used. I will provide disinfectant.
Proper behavior in the locker room is expected. Keep your hands to yourself, treat others with respect, treat the school with respect, don’t steal other people’s things, and be considerate of other people’s feelings.
ABSOLUTLEY NO USE OF CELL PHONES OR CAMERAS ALLOWED IN THE LOCKER ROOM.
Each day you will be graded on a point scale 0-20 or 0-10 on effort, proper form, and transitioning. Grading is based off of effort, form, and a positive attitude. Complaining, whining, not listening, using very low weights for your ability, not transitioning quickly to the next exercise, taking excessive breaks, and not working hard will cause a deduction in your daily points.
You will not love every workout we do but I ask that you try your hardest and have a positive attitude.
Monday and Friday: Open activity/personal workout days=10 points
Tuesday and Thursday: Team game days=10 points
Wednesday: DVD workout day= 20 points
