This course is broadly about women, physical activity/exercise, and health. We will address specific themes related to women, exercise, motivation and the body, as well as investigate physical activity within larger sociocultural and health contexts. This broad perspective will allow us to think critically about the role of exercise and physical fitness in women’s lives. Additionally, this course includes an experiential learning component. We will engage in activities and analytical thinking related to our unique experiences and relationships with physical activity and exercise.
