Does the curriculum have a list of equipment that a student needs? Thanks!
Thank you for your interest in Foundations of Physical Fitness! You’ll be happy to know that this course does not require any special equipment for the student to complete the workouts, but you will want to purchase a foam roller for the post-workout recovery. In the Foam-Rolling video, the instructor provides information on the best type of foam roller for a beginner. Let us know if you have any further questions. We’re happy to help!
How many days a week is the course meant to be done? Looking at the logs I’m assuming workout 3 days a week and reading/testing two. Is that correct? How long is the average reading/ testing time, video, and workout time? Trying to get a feel for how long my kids would spend each day doing this.
Good questions, Rachael!
Generally, the workout aspect is performed 3x per week, and the book work/tests one or two days per week (two days, generally, when a test is assigned). The workouts will take different lengths of time for different teens based on their fitness level. However, I wouldn’t expect the workouts to take more than 35-45 minutes. Periodically, a 2-mile walk is assigned along with the workout; of course, that will require additional time.
Regarding the textbook work, that would take approximately the same amount of time as an average workout, again allowing for differences in reading/learning speeds of different students.
The course includes a Suggested Syllabus to provide a starting point in laying out the course for the student.
Hope this helps! 🙂
Hi, this looks like a good curriculum? How much does it cost? How many videos are included? thanks.
Hi Denisa, The curriculum is $34.99. Here’s a full description for you: https://www.7sistershomeschool.com/product/foundations-of-physical-fitness/
Do you think that the Foundations in Physical Fitness would be beneficial for a 14-year-old who does not currently exercise and is overweight. Or would it be frustrating for him or beyond his capacity? I don’t want to make him feel bad about his body but I do want him to learn how to be more fit and know how to set realistic goals for himself.
That’s a good question. Fourteen year olds vary widely in their capacity. Take a look at the excerpt and see if it is in his reading and attention level. If it is comfortable reading, it might help inspire him to find his fitness. https://www.7sistershomeschool.com/excerpt-from-foundations-of-physical-fitness/
Some teens need to wait until 10th or 11th grade, that’s okay. This year (or next) might be the best for Health. https://www.7sistershomeschool.com/product/high-school-health-for-the-whole-person/
Or you might decide to start out 9th grade with a gentle but interesting phys ed program. Check the ideas in this post: https://www.7sistershomeschool.com/5-fun-ways-to-log-phys-ed-hours-for-non-athletic-homeschoolers/
Are the videos streaming? Can they be downloaded to a device?
Good question! They are accessed via Google Drive, so they may be streamed or downloaded and saved for ease of access in YOUR homeschool only. The videos and the links to them are copyrighted material, and as with all of our ebooks we ask that homeschool families honor copyright by not sharing them with others who have not purchased the titles.
Good question, Jennifer,
It is an etext, as are all our curricula. You are free to purchase one copy, download it and share with all the members of your own household.
In foundations for physical fitness, does it come with a textbook or do you print all info out to do? I am a little confused if the textbook comes with the order! I have 2 kids & want them both completing this course! Thank you!
