A new PE format “Bfit” was introduced earlier this year. The goal of this format is to get students interested and proactive about their health

“It’s more of like a health club format…students have more autonomy over the things they get to do,” gym teacher Marcus Kuiper said.

The class uses heart monitors and Flexisched to operate. Students are required to obtain minutes in a specific heart rate “zone.”

Freshman Donovan Bjerregaard-Dionne wears the new Bfit heart monitor.

“Right now it’s fifty minutes per week, based on specific heart rate zones,” Kuiper said.

Some students have raised speculation on the accuracy of the heart monitor.

“We don’t really think the monitors work,” Senior Bobby Williams said.

Although there have been some errors in the system, PE administration affirms that the system is conclusive.

“Anytime you implement a new system there’s going to be a growth period,” Kuiper said.
