Kelly Nevins, virtual learning coordinator, passed out exercise tracking devices from her office in the Pride Center Wednesday, Jan. 9. These Garmin devices were given to students enrolled in online physical fitness to record the time they spend active through tracking their heart rate. Students turn a timer on to track the duration of their exercise to then upload for their online teacher to see.

“So far, online gym has been a good experience for me,” Cecilia Escudero, sophomore, said. “I am excited to have the freedom of working out when it is convenient for me, and I think the devices are a good tool for that.”
