EACH PARTNER MUST SUBMIT A FORM FOR THE WEEK!

The Time Sheets include a place to write down the date, times, and duration of the first and second strength training program along with a section to note your favorite and least favorite exercises.  There is a section for the required and extra Group Fitness class which includes a place to name the class and the duration of the class.  For both of these sections a signature must be obtained from the Rec Sports staff on duty as well as the Group Fitness instructor.  There is also a section to explain what you did for your activity of choice.  Remember that in order to obtain all the points for the activity, it must involve a moderate to intense level of physical activity.
