Online fitness walking class???
I have enjoyed most of the reactions I get from folks (face-to-face) when I mention online walking class to them – a smile/grin and “yeah right”, a bit of rolling of the eyes, but isn’t walking and online sort of an oxymoron? So I can imagine what you might be thinking right about now.
Well, I will start my online walking fitness class next week. It is a one credit hour PE course offered by the local college where I currently work. There are no on campus requirements for this course - it will all be online.
For this course, each student is required to purchase a Garmin FR60 heart rate monitor and create an account with Garmin Connect. The good news for me, I already have the FR60 and do upload my information to Garmin Connect (well at least for long walks & races). So, I am ready to go – just have to wait until class starts.
More to come on this next week…
