Required Textbook & Materials:

Seiger, L. H., & Hesson, J. (2012). Walking for fitness (6th ed.). New York, NY: Kendall Hunt Publishing. ISBN: 978-1-4652-0923-8.

 

Fitbit (Zip OR any Fitbit model OR download the Fitbit App on your phone) Wireless Activity Tracker

 (Required)

 

Can be purchased at many local sporting goods stores and Best Buy or online.

 www.fitbit.com

 

Please note ONLY the Fitbit platform can be used for this class even if you have another fitness tracker. The Fitbit software allows me to log on and see my entire class of 50-60 students all in one shot! Otherwise, I would need usernames and passwords from everyone to log on to their particular device in order to view their progress and I'm sure you can imagine what a nightmare that would be! Also this product allows me to just review your walking progress and not other items you may be tracking that you prefer to keep private!

 

Requried: Either you own scanner OR access to a scanner in order to scan, save, and submit scans as PDF docs in order to submit as part of assignment requirements. Note: the MiraCosta College library (OC and SAN campuses) have scanners you can use.
