                     COURSE SYLLABUS
COURSE NAME: EXTREME EXCELLENCE CHALLENGE (E2C) -- WELLNESS PROGRAM

INSTRUCTOR NAMES: Major Patton and Chief Bridgers

REQUIRED TEXT: None.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Wellness is an official part of the Air Force Junior ROTC program. It is
an exercise program focused upon individual base line improvements with the goal of achieving a
national standard as calculated with age and gender. The program at NC-032 also seeks to address
the mental and spiritual aspects of individual wellness through relaxation and teambuilding
activities. Wellness is instrumental in developing citizens of character dedicated to serving our
nation and communities. Cadets will be given the opportunity to put into practice the wellness
concepts that are taught in Leadership Education. Instructors are free to include other activities
cadets enjoy such as team sports in order to keep the Wellness Program fun and motivating. The
Wellness Program is a 36-week program modifiable to meet individual goals. Personal
improvement will be rewarded. The 36-week program is comprised of several exercises which can
be conducted with minimal space and with minimal climate dependency (e.g. the 1-mile run). The
exercises develop all muscle groups and provide sufficient anaerobic and aerobic intensity. They
require no equipment and use only body weight and common objects (e.g. chairs).

COURSE OBJECTIVES: Motivating cadets to lead active, healthy lifestyles beyond program
requirements and into their adult lives.
