This capstone project investigated student participation in the KINS 1800: Fitness for Living course offered in the Health and Kinesiology College at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). The Fitness for Living Lab course aims to educate the students on different types of workouts to encourage the students to try different workouts/exercises throughout the semester long course.

During the spring 2023 semester I administered a 10-item pre and post survey to determine if students would partake in cardio activities that they were exposed to in the Fitness for Living course. Following analysis of the data it was noted that the course was beneficial to those who actively participated in the cardio activities that were embedded in the course.
