This course is designed to acquaint the student with fitness walking, power walking, and race walking techniques. Grades will be calculated based on a walking log, a written examination, a walking form evaluation, and skill tests. Skill will be evaluated based on a timed 1-mile walk, 1.5-mile walk, and a 2-mile walk. An emphasis will be placed on endurance training in preparation for the walk tests.
Speed and strength training will also be incorporated into the workouts.
