Allow female students to take the weight fit course.

This petition had 36 supporters

First of all I'd like to thank you for your interest in this issue. I am extremely passionate about giving female students the opportunity to enroll in weight fit as well as many other people. Currently, female students are given the option to take a personal fitness class which differs from weight fit significantly. Weight fit students work in the weight room year round while personal fitness students have a brief unit in the weight room. This curriculum assumes that all male students only weight train and female students cardio train. This is an unfair assumption as many female students like myself exclusively train in the weight room and would like to benefit from the same opportunity as the fellow male students. If allowing a female weight fit class is completely impossible I propose that a coed weight fit class would be a step in the right direction. I'd like to point out that aquatics, which is a fitness class in the water, is a coed class so I question why the standard fitness classes are completely different for the two genders. Please support this petition to ensure that female students can get the most out of their physical education experience at Northern Secondary School; Toronto's finest high school.
