The focus is on how physical exercise conditions the heart, lungs, and muscles. Students learn to differentiate between aerobic exercises that provide cardiorespiratory benefits and those that do not. They also learn about the importance of muscular endurance and strength as components of fitness.

Learning Goals:
1. Students will demonstrate their understanding of the importance and benefits of a good workout by answering questions correctly during the "Fitness Monopoly" activity.
2. Students will participate in a workout consisting of a warm-up, a workout, and a cool down.
