PE 236 Anatomical Kinesiology • 4 Cr.


Introduction to basic Anatomy and Physiology with an emphasis in human movement, nutrition and exercise science. This course is intended for non-science majors interested in fitness instruction or basic health education.


Prerequisite: High school level biology.


After completing this class, students should be able to:

  • Locate and identify characteristics of muscles, bones and attachments within the human body
  • Identify agonist and antagonistic muscle groups for specific exercises
  • Identify different types of joints, basic mechanics and injuries common to specific joints
  • Develop fitness training programs designed to improve specific components of fitness while reducing the risk of injury
  • Apply linear and angular motion mechanics in developing an exercise plan to optimize components of a fitness program
  • Through observation or the use of film, apply anatomical and mechanical concepts needed to qualitatively assess motor skills
  • Develop fitness programs based on stated goals of strength development, flexibility, muscle endurance, cardiovascular health or improved body composition
