Fitness Suite Circuit - R13

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
The activity we participated in was a Fitness Suite Circuit. We had 8 stations with different fitness tasks. They were, Cycling, Rowers, Lunge Jumps, Bicep Curls, Russian twists, Burpees, Medicine Ball Squats and Agility Zig Zag. We did 2 rounds with 45 seconds each station. The last round was a 20 second station with 1 minutes breaks throughout each station.
  • What level of effort and engagement were you participating at during today’s physical activity? Why? (Grade yourself NA, A or M and refer to marking criteria)
I give myself a Merit because I was prepared and organised by bringing my gear, I worked hard towards my goal which was finish the circuit at a high level, I supported my team mate when she got tired, I showed happy vibes throughout the activity and I did my best by allowing myself to overcome the tired emotions.
  • What were three factors which influenced your participation? (Choose from the list below, and put a + or - beside the three factors to show whether it positively or negatively influenced your participation).
Fitness -, Equipment -, Sense of Achievement +
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)
Fitness affected my participation in a negative because I am unfit. This made me get tired super fast, which made me not want to go on with the fitness circuit. I would try my best but then end up taking a rest. An example was when I was doing the burpees. Instead of doing a push up and then getting back up, I stayed on the ground lol. To prevent this more, I will need to have a stronger and better mindset before we begin.
Equipment affected my participation because I brought the wrong clothes. Instead of bringing shorts, I brought track pants. This made my legs hot a lot quicker, which made me sweat more than I should've. By sweating even more, it distracted me from the circuit because I was too busy cooling myself off. An example was when we were cycling, I went to the window instead of cycling lol.
Sense of Achievement affected my participation because I was eager to set and finish a goal I put in my head. That was to finish each station at my best performance. By setting this goal, it made me work hard despite all the distractions, such as sweat and heat. An example was when it was the 20 second round. I went hard out and got the job done.
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future?
To increase my participation I would not only be physically prepared, but also mentally prepared for this kind of Physical Activity. This would help me be ready in 2 ways.

Kia ora Autymn, I'm impressed with the way you carried on despite the factors that made it hard. You mentioned your mindset. I agree this is important. As well as this practicing exercise is another was to help you get better. As we practice we get better at anything.
Thanks for sharing your reflections so openly.

Quite an intuitive thing to recognise that stamina is about your mindset, Autymn! I thoroughly agree with that and often have a similar issue ;p!
