Date: Spring 2010
In Health Related Fitness, I learned many different skill assessments in order to find out what ability level an individual is starting at. I also learned how to create a workout program to improve muscular strength, endurance, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance. I assessed myself in muscular strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance. I then planned and followed a fitness plan.
The results of my fitness assessment show that I follow a fitness plan that helps maintain a health-enhancing level of fitness.
A physical educator needs to maintain a high-quality level of fitness because he or she is a role model to all students. Students can be motivated to improve their own fitness level because of how fit their physical education teacher is.

Having knowledge in a wide range of activities is crucial for physical educators because they are responsible for teaching a curriculum that contains a variety of units.
