Welcome to Moodle!
Welcome to Fitness and Wellness. My name is Greg Johnson and I will be your instructor this semester.
This course is designed to help students learn how to modify their health and lifestyle choices in order to help them live an active and healthy life. Topics of this course may include the five components of fitness, the health triangle, techniques of weight management, the ability to find and critically interpret reliable health information, as well as other health and fitness topics.
This class will be unique in that we will be combining the activity aspects of a fitness class with the "book work" of a health class.
This will be the sixth year of teaching an online class for me. This will be the first time that I am offering this class to Verndale students in an exclusive format. I am sure that we will have to make some changes and adjustments as we go. On the left side of the page you will find a section called "Latest News". Check this area for announcements related to the course. The first thing that I would like you to do is to read over the information found in the course overview section below.
