P.E. teacher Cole Renken and his health classes went to the local YMCA on Oct. 18. While they were there, students participated in a heart rate lab by using the treadmills at different speeds for different amounts of time. The goal was to see how the different levels of exercise affected the user’s heart rate.

“My experience at the YMCA was very helpful for me to understand the importance of fitness,” sophomore Bryer Rose said. She went on to state the experience was an “enlightening” one, as it helped her realized why it is important to eat healthy, as well as get active on a daily basis.
