4. Ask questions about how to practice being fit daily

The professors know a lot about fitness and nutrition. Take this opportunity to talk to them when you’re doing activities, like working out. If you don’t know the proper form of a bench press, ask your professor; they should be glad to help you out.


5. Enjoy the activities

Although 4 minute planks can be super painful and annoying, take the time to appreciate the activities. They will probably push you to the limit, but if you find the fun in them, you’ll not only feel good about yourself, but also enjoy your friend’s company. Take it slow!



These are some tips that well help you succeed in KIN 157. This class isn’t for everyone, but for people who have the ambition to becoming more aware of their body and exercise, this is for you. These tips should help you when you take this class in the near future!
