Physical Fitness as Gen. Ed

Learn to live well!

Durham College (DC) is excited to introduce a new general elective program that raises awareness of various models of physical activity as well as the importance of physical activity through all stages of life.

Evidence shows that exercise enhances overall quality of life including mental health, academic and work performance, parenting ability, self-esteem, concentration and sleep quality. Find Your Fit was designed to teach students how to harness and integrate the positive effects of physical fitness into their lives.

Students will also learn the evolution of intentional exercise, barriers to exercise and related solutions, the importance of exercise, the stages of change model and the impact of technology on physical activity. The interactive program offers face time with the teacher, collaboration with classmates and online learning components.

The first course will be offered in the fall of 2015 through the School of Interdisciplinary Studies and Employment Services (ISES).
