Personal Fitness Heart Rate Monitor Information
A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:
Cobb Virtual Academy’s Personal Fitness class is a highly successful online course that was cited in the recently published National Guidelines for Online Physical Education. A key component of the class is the physical activity or workouts. Part of the success is the ability to record student cardio and strength activities with a heart rate monitor.
For the Summer 2023 term, CVA Personal Fitness students will have the option of using their own heart rate monitor or a program-issued one. Students using a program-issued monitor will be required to pick it up from Cobb Virtual Academy on the scheduled date/time.* Their teacher will reach out to set up an online meeting on how to use the program issued equipment, if needed. With the guidance of their instructors, students will use heart rate monitoring devices to track and make progress towards their physical goals, using either their own device or a program-issued one. We look forward to working with you and having a successful, healthy Summer!
