Building on this foundational emphasis of wellness, the Kinesiology Department created Soph Wellness: Kinesthetic Practices. This is an activity-based course designed to introduce students to the latest research and trends in fitness, nutrition and wellness. From stress management and sleep to overall wellbeing, students explore personal health and individual behaviors. Units of study include the components of fitness, development of an exercise plan, posture screening, fueling the body for energy, stress management, self-defense, and CPR training. Utilizing an online fitness platform, students are taught the foundational techniques of strength training that will allow them to progress to more advanced levels. Our goal is that students will gain the confidence and skills necessary to maintain their health and fitness for life.
New on the Sports Medicine front is the addition of student-athletic trainers to Carondelet athletic events. Students enrolled in the Sports Medicine Internship program work directly with CHS certified athletic trainers to gain practical insight and knowledge of the sports medicine field in order to prepare them for potential future opportunities.
