My first CAS experience was planning and completing a six week fitness program which involved various types of exercise such as cardiovascular, strengthening, recovery as well as mental exercise. I completed exercises such as yoga, meditation, walking, foam rolling, playing tennis and netball training as well as incorporating one rest day per week.
The goal of my fitness program is to improve my flexibility and build on my fitness in preparation for the Melbourne Netball Tour at the beginning of July. I also aimed to try new exercises that I have never completed before such as yoga and mediation.
My fitness program has been a wonderful experience which has challenged me to set time aside to complete exercise and also complete new skills. However it has also tested my time management skills as at times it was difficult to manage completing homework and still have time to complete each the daily schedule of my fitness program.
