Physical Fitness and Wellness

Physical Fitness and Wellness (PFW) is a two credit-hour course that includes one hour of lecture and two hours of physical activity per week. The lecture contains a common core of knowledge concerning fitness and wellness. The activity portion of this class promotes the importance of being physically active for the development and maintenance of physical fitness. The Ball State student enrolls in PFW according to the specific aerobic activity he/she wishes to pursue for the entire term. The student may select one of the following six courses: physical conditioning, walking, jogging, aerobics, water aerobics or swimming. The PFW requirement is viewed as a springboard toward a total university commitment to fitness and wellness.
