ELECTIVE




Instructor: Norma Fay


SYLLABUS

COURSE OVERVIEW:

        This elective online course is not a dieting plan.  In fact, instructor Norma Fay, a horsewoman and certified weight management consultant says "don't diet."
        The student will develop a personal S.M.A.R.T. goal - Specific, Measurable, Action, Realistic, and Timed.  You will also learn how to develop a personal healthy eating plan, and you'll get  F.I.T (frequency, intensity, time) with both aerobic and resistance exercise plans.
         When riding, there is one aid which is always there - your weight.
         Most of us know when we are a little too heavy.  But most of us don't know what we can do about it, short of dieting, which we all know never has lasting results.
