    Physical activity choices are based on personal interests and capabilities to maintain an active lifestyle. Students have an increased awareness of opportunities for activity leading to an increased enjoyment in voluntary participation. Understanding the connection between physical activity and wellness is likewise enhanced and motivates students to identify resources in the community that facilitate attainment of individual lifestyle goals and personal choice behavior. Students begin to take ownership in the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They make independent decisions about their physical activities that enhance their lifelong health. They meet healthy guidelines by participating regularly in moderate to vigorous physical activities both in school and outside of school settings.
