Tracking Exercise in the Online Setting

A GOC Physical Education student will be required to plan out their exercise requirements, and create new plans with increased training throughout the course. Once the plan is set students will track their exercise using a heart rate tracking device or Fitbit app along with a GOC Fitness Log. All exercise sessions are summarized and validated on a GOC Fitness Log and turned in at the end of each week (by Sunday at midnight of each week).

Click HERE for detailed instructions of how to track and validate exercise.

Click HERE for a copy of the GOC Fitness Log.

The first two important factors to consider are HEART RATE OR PACE of exercise. Both of these components will tell the teacher the intensity level of the student’s workout (a key component to the delivery of a PE program online). Two other key components is sharing the length of time in each exercise session, and the calendar date of the exercise session. Below are examples of validating screenshots from a Fitbit App, Fitbit device, and Apple Watch.
