I had a meeting with my two superiors and I think I broke a blood pressure record. My immediate supervisor wants more machines and treadmills because that’s what people use in real world fitness centers (or at least the one she claims she goes to). She also claims that other PE staff and school faculty don’t like using the free weights or instucting free weight exercises. Isn’t the whole idea of teaching to TEACH them how to perform exercises that are the most beneficial and get the best results? The head of the department at least wants to try and meet somewhere in the middle. We offer weight training for PE and have an after school strength and conditioning program that I run (just some background). Well sorry for the rant. I’m still jacked up from the meeting so I’m going to go lift and throw some weight around.
