With daily workouts, meditations, and scholarly discussions, this exciting interdisciplinary course will challenge your body, mind, and spirit. All physical activity can be scaled and modified to accommodate everyone's fitness level and ability. We believe that athletic and academic success is garnered through the accumulation of incremental gains. In this course, we will discuss key principles, theories, and evidence from different perspectives, including cognitive science, neuroscience, exercise science, and sports psychology. Topics will include exercise, food choices, sleep, social support, emotion, memory, and motivation as well as finding purpose and meaning in one's life. NOTE: If you are a varsity athlete, you need to get permission from your coach before enrolling in FitLab.
