Course Project Kyla Collins [email protected] 5/31/14 Fitness Life Style Design


Introduction For my course project, I chose to sign up for a membership at a local gym. I chose Gold’s Gym because it’s where my mom goes. This gym has fairly new equipment and is kept pretty clean.

Engagement Activities:

Engagement Activities I chose this activity because a couple summers ago my mom signed me up for a membership at the gym and I really liked it but our schedules made it hard for me to go there with her. Now that I have my own car, I can drive there myself. I also really like the gym because there isn’t any competition or pressure to win which is good for me since I’m not very competitive. I do cardio and strength training when I go to the gym. I really like using the elliptical because I can fell that my muscles are working out quickly where as on the treadmill I’d just keep running and not feel as if I’m building muscle. I don’t really have a favorite strength training machine; they all make me feel like I’m gaining muscle. Even though I only filled out a verification form for 1 day a week, I usually went 2 or 3 times a week. Working out one day doesn’t feel like it’s really beneficial. In the beginning though, I only went as often as my mom would go with me which is hard because of our schedules but I felt more comfortable with her being there.


Sportsmanship sportsmanlike conduct, as fairness, courtesy, being a cheerful loser, etc. Sportsmanship is showing respect for each other and your opponents. It is also not being a sore loser or rubbing your win in people’s faces. In the gym, I showed sportsmanship by wiping the gym equipment clean after I was done using it.

Sports in other Cultures:

Sports in other Cultures People in every country work out. However they might not all go to the gym like I do. Memberships can be expensive so people get exercise by doing other things like playing sports. Soccer is the world’s most popular sport. Unlike in many countries, American football is the most popular sport in the United States. Like in America, the amount of physical activity people do has been declining. Many believe this is a result of urbanization. As more people move to urban areas, they are surrounded by less parks and recreational sports centers. However I believe people in urban areas are more physically fit. When I went to Washington D.C. I noticed many more people riding bikes and jogging than here. I think people who aren’t in metropolitan cities feel like they don’t need to maintain their health as well. This is because cities like New York or LA are seen across the country on tv and magazines and their people want to maintain their youth and appearance while smaller cities are unknown and not seen all over the place. Sports play an important role in the lives of Americans and people of other nations because many people watch them and feel passionate about seeing their favorite players win or lose. One major difference between American sports and those of other countries is that we put a lot of pressure on athletes to perform their best and not as much on their education. This is because athletes make millions more than someone who’s well-educated. People who plays sports in high school might get an injury and if they didn't have focus on their actual education, they might not have a good future. The biggest similarity between all countries' sports is that sports unite people together to watch the players compete and cheer for their favorites.

In-School Resources:

In-School Resources Since my activity is going to the gym, our school doesn’t offer an activity where you can just work out My school has soccer, football, basketball, cross country, baseball, volleyball, bowling, golf, softball, swim & dive, tennis and weightlifting teams. My school also has a frisbee club where people get together and play ultimate frisbee. My school offers classes like Personal Fitness and First Aid & Care and Prevention of Athletic Injuries which teach us about health and fitness Spruce Creek High School cheer and tennis teams

Community Resources:

Community Resources My activity is offered in my community. There are many gyms like Gold’s, Planet Fitness and YMCA. People can participate in the community soccer league and there are parks with tennis, basketball courts and even a baseball field for everyone to use. In one neighborhood, there are many bike trails that are shaded by trees. There are also skate parks and a skating rink where kids can play hockey. Nova Rd. Baseball Field Sign for Port Orange YMCA

Final Thoughts & Reflections:

Final Thoughts & Reflections It’s important to workout no matter what you do because it improves your physical and mental health. Later in the summer I’ll probably be doing a bike ride on the beach that my mom organizes. I’ve gained a greater appreciation for working out and being healthy. Going to the gym makes me feel good about myself and even though I get sweaty and gross, I feel like working out cleanses me of laziness and junk food I have recommended to some of my friends that they should get memberships to the gym. A couple of them actually are and we’re going to work out and take a couple Zumba classes at the gym together.
