Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
  • Students will develop a tangible fitness goal. Students will complete the above regimen of training weekly. Students will track their weekly progress in a fitness journal. Students will perform cardio and muscle-building tasks in order to reach their goals.
I am a former member of a Marine Corps Sniper Team.  All of our training was extremely high-level.  We routinely ran 5-10 miles daily.  We often walked upwards of 25 miles to reach our destination.  All of our muscle training was calisthenic in nature (using only body weight).  Physical fitness was a daily part of life.  I love to help others develop a love for fitness.  
Homework Offered
Students may review weekly classes and practice on their own in order to reach their fitness goals. (optional)
Assessments Offered
Students will be encouraged to keep a fitness journal to track their progress independently. This will help students set realistic goals and take ownership of their fitness abilities.
Grades Offered
Drinking water (bottle, plastic cup *no glass cups, please)
Gym clothes (or any loose fitting clothes that are comfortable)
Journal-- for goals and to track progress
Your student will need a small, clutter-free area to perform bodyweight exercises (calisthenics).  

Please provide your student with a clear, hazard free area.  

Keep pets out of the area during the class for safety reasons.

Have your student wear loose fitting attire--or gym clothes--with sneakers.

Please provide your student with a bottle of water--or a cup of water--no glass cups, please.

Students may take short breaks, as needed, to catch his/her breath.

Each class will begin with a greeting, a light stretch, and a short warm-up.  

* Class times are approximate.  Class length varies based on student ability and number of enrolled learners.  Classes are designed to they will not run longer than the time allotted.  I will try to lengthen classes due to a late start--when possible.

** Late/Missed class policy:  All classes will begin on time as long as one learner is in the classroom.  In the event that no students are in the classroom at the assigned class time, the teacher will leave a message on the discussion board and exit after 10 minutes have passed.  Class recordings are available to all learners.
