KIN 1: Student Designed Fitness Programming

Students will learn how to design safe, effective, exercise programs based on their individual needs and interest. Through class discussions, assignments and participation, students will learn all the health-related and skill-related components of fitness such as cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, balance, agility, speed, power, and coordination. Prerequisite: All levels and abilities welcome.
Terms: Win | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit

KIN 2: Fitness for Life

Learn about the essential concepts related to fitness and exercise (i.e. biomechanics, exercise nutrition, setting SMART goals, injury prevention, flexibility, stress management, cardiovascular health, lower back care and principles of weight training). Students will apply these concepts in class by engaging in a variety of physical activities such as: weight-training, Pilates, yoga, H.I.I.T, plyometric-training, speed and agility training, aerobic-endurance activities and TRX.

KIN 100: Introduction to Human Movement: Mind-Body Performance

Investigate the basic principles governing human movement with an emphasis on sports applications and lifelong wellness. Conceptually and experientially examine the latest research and theories on basic anatomy and biology as pertaining to injury prevention, principles of optimal human performance, and the mind-body connection. Topics include periodization, modes of exercises, types of injuries, the healing process, and physiological and psychological factors influencing body movement.

KIN 101: Analysis of Human Movement

Covers the basic principles governing human movement with an emphasis on sports and performance applications. Examines anatomy and biology (large- and small-scale structure and function); applied anatomy, both anatomy (body structure) and mechanics (force, torque), which together describe macroscopic movement; applied biology, specifically the molecular and cellular basis of movement mechanics (force, torque, etc) together describe macroscopic movement; applied biology, specifically the molecular and cellular basis of movement including muscles contraction, nerves signals, and related topics such as exercise damage, cramping, muscle memory, DOMS and fatigue.

KIN 102: Nutrition for Lifelong Physical Activity

Understand the bodies' nutritional needs in all capacities of human movement and daily physical activity is fundamental in achieving health and overall well-being. Learn how to nourish their body to build and maintain their health and well-being throughout their lives. Utilize class discussions, class assignments, and student participation to: identify basic principles of healthy eating to prevent disease and promote optimal health and performance; recognize the role of food and contexts in which food choices are made; and make confident and intelligent eating decisions that will contribute to building and maintaining a well-nourished body, meeting its changing needs.

KIN 120: Physical Activity and Exercise: Injury Awareness, Treatment and Management

Introduces common injuries associated with physical activity as well as methods for injury prevention and management. The fundamental biological processes related to healing of the human body and injury nomenclature will also be examined. Furthermore, human anatomy will be covered as it relates to common injuries related to physical activity in the general population. Additionally, students will apply common injury management methods in practical usage. Course materials will cover topics such as foam rolling, stretching, injury taping, healing phases of the body, fatigue, and muscle cramping among other related topics.
