BIOL 100
Biology of Exercise and Nutrition Winter 2023
Division III

Class Details

This class, intended for the non-scientist, focuses on the impact of exercise and nutrition on the human body. We will discuss topics such as how different types of training influence exercise performance; the changes that occur in the cardiovascular system during an exercise routine; an examination of the inherent limits of the body to perform aerobic and anaerobic tasks; and long-term health consequences of a lifetime of activity or inactivity. We will also examine how nutrition and metabolism affect body composition. For example, we will rigorously and scientifically scrutinize the use of “fad” diets as a means to lose weight.
