Personal Fitness Portfolio

Ted Temertzoglou

Your students' guide to setting
and achieving personal fitness goals

The Personal Fitness Portfolio (PFP) is designed to give students ownership over their learning, by proving the information and tools they need to set, measure and achieve their personal fitness goals and assess their movement competence. It can be used with or without HAL2.0, and in any health and physical education or personal fitness course. Students can even use the same PFP throughout different grades in high school.

Quality Assessment
Made Easy

Student success is our priority

PFPs help students understand how they are being assessed, placing the emphasis on goal setting and personal achievement, and not on how they compare to their classmates. They provide worksheets for students to create their own personalized fitness plan, as well as training logs, calendars, and activity sheets to track their progress along the way.

Differentiate Your Approach

23 appraisals to choose from

Students have the flexibility to select which fitness appraisals they would like to complete based on their personalized fitness plan, helping you differentiate your approach to the individual needs and interest of your students. Each appraisal includes instructions, space to track results, and norms for students to use as a benchmark.
