New times bring changes to the Physical Education department.

The current Aerobic Conditioning class, lead by gym teacher Ms. Jennifer Sievers, is changing its curriculum to become more modernized. The class will officially be changing it’s name to Total Body Conditioning next year to better match the redesigned class.

Total Body Conditioning wants to put a focus on not only physical health, but mental health as well. The class will no longer focus only on aerobic. The plan is to have less cardio exercises, but more crossfit, using the ballet bars that are in the dance studio, and promoting group exercise. But, one of the changes that have attracted many is the inclusion of self defense.

“I think that learning self defense helps me feel more powerful. It lets me know that I can protect myself,” says sophomore Savannah Palmore. “Some people don’t have that security but because of this class I feel safer.”

Sievers is working with her students on how to defend themselves. The goal of these lessons is having students, male or female, know how to protect themselves since many will be going to college soon and may need to know how to be safe around campus and the world in general.

“I get excited about fitness. I get excited about the kids seeing changes in themselves, whether it’s physically or emotionally,” says Sievers as she expressed her fondness for how positively the class is affecting her students.

In her 15 years of teaching, she’s gone from just teaching simple dance aerobics to classes that move with the times. Sievers expressed that each generation is different and that the class is bound to keep changing with the times.

This change in curriculum is not only in Eisenhower, but also at Richards and Shepard.

If students are interested in taking Total Body Conditioning, the elective can be chosen for next year’s gym course with your counselor.
