    Hello my awesome Strength TRaining classes!
    First of all, I miss you all! I hope your Spring Break was fantastic despite the current circumstances. Just to give you a heads up, Mr. Schwetz, and I are planning to teach remotely. We are planning to touch base and provide workout challenges with you all through Google classroom. These challenges will include workouts with body weight, backpacks, chairs, water bottles, trails, etc. We are going to stick to the usual daily routines which includes Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays being the strength days, Wednesdays the abs, stretch, meditation days and Thursdays being cardio days. As you can imagine, we are going to get a little creative with trying to provide you with the best workouts possible.
    If at anytime you have any questions, want to check in, or just talk, I will make myself available any time through my school email kkriesel@fusd1.org. Mr. Schwetz is also available at dschwetz@fusd1.org. We are looking into Canvas and other forms of communication during this time. I will let you know as we become more informed.
    On another note, as a health teacher, I would advise you all to adhere to CDC recommendations to get us all through this crazy time healthy. You can look at those recommendations on the CDC.gov website. At the same time, go outside, get some exercise, drink lots of water, make healthy choices, take a multi-vitamin, keep a positive attitude and be kind! All these things will boost your immune system. After all, if you don't have your health what do you have? Healthy = Happy!
    Yours in Strength,
    Mrs. Kriesel
    The main objective of the Strength Training class here at CHS, just as in any other class, is COMMITMENT. In this class we expect our students will strive to achieve strength, speed, flexibility, endurance, stamina, self-confidence and discipline. It will be sport specific and by choosing this class you are making the commitment to attend class, dress-out, participate, give 110% effort, and respect yourself and others on a daily basis. It is a PRIVELIGE to be in this class – not a right.

    Tips for Success


    J  Be on time, prepared to work, and ready to participate EVERY DAY.   

    J  NO energy drinks or soda will be allowed in class at anytime!  I   

          recommend bringing a water bottle.

    J  Treat others as you wish to be treated…it goes a long way! 
    This class requires that you purchase or acquire a 1-inch binder with at least 5 dividers.  It will be used to keep your weekly workouts, goals and other required papers for your reference.  You will keep your binder in your locker and bring it to class when needed.  Yes!  It will be graded and is worth a bunch of points.  See me with questions.
    v     School rules are “life rules”.  When you have a job you are expected to be there everyday.  You are expected to be on time, to dress appropriately, and to be courteous to people around you.  You are also expected to give your best effort each day.  In school, you are asked to do the same.
    My expectations are high for each individual who signs up for this class...be prepared to give me your best every day as I will be pushing you to reach your goals you will set for yourself.  If not for me then do it for yourself!
