Thank you for purchasing this resource “Celebrity Trainer”, this resource is designed to engage your students in the world of physical activity and exercise. Students will learn about the various aspects of physical health and then, use their knowledge to create an exercise routine for a celebrity. This resource is designed to be completed over a 2 week period.
Students start the project by interviewing for a job opening as a personal trainer. They will then realize that they have what it takes to become their own boss, and enter the world of physical fitness, as a celebrity trainer.
Students will form a “Celebrity Training Company” with 2 other students. Students will then learn about the essential concepts of physical activity and exercise. Students will complete activities which they will include in their “Training Portfolio”.
They will then select their own celebrity. Students will assess the fitness level of their celebrity based on current information that they can find about that particular celebrity. Alternatively, the teacher may select the celebrity, which your students will train.
Students will then create an exercise routine for their celebrity. Students will create an infomercial about their Celebrity Training company, Celebrity, their success as a trainer and demonstrate various examples of exercise routines. The infomercial will account for 40% of their final grade.
