The overall philosophy of TrainUp is founded on one idea that is of major concern, childhood obesity. It was createdby a local doctor in Rockwall; Dr. Pfliegers’ idea was to incorporate technology into the realm of physical fitness thatoffered children an alternative to the traditional form of exercise that is generally only sports related. The field ofphysical fitness has only utilized technology in a limited manner to improve health status so this concept is new andvery exciting to think about. What makes this idea so exciting is the fact that physical fitness has never utilized theconcept of virtual biking and interactive games as a form of exercise. As technology continues to expand thechildren of this generation continue to advance technologically; and what better way to reach out to the children ofthis community by adding technology into their exercise program. The TrainUp philosophy is a wonderful attempt tochange the fate of childhood obesity by offering an alternate solution to the dilemma this county is now facing.TrainUp mission statement is to enhance the physical fitness of children from the ages of eight to twelve by offeringthem a place to go where they can exercise and have fun utilizing the technology they are so accustomed to using ona daily basis. Health screening is a normal part of the facilities protocol prior to beginning physical activity. Thechildren can become members in several different ways; most of the children that attend are patients of Dr.Pflieger, and the parents insurance is billed as preventative care to pay for their participation as a member ofTrainUp. The facility does offer memberships that can be paid for individually and the Rockwall ISD utilizes the facilityfor some P.E. In addition to the technological activates offered the facility is also providing wellness classes for thechildren and parents, group fitness activities and personal training.Because of his interaction with the community, Rockwall ISD is attempting to utilize Dr. Pfliegers facility for physicaleducation classes; however, the use of the facility is somewhat limited right now because the concept is so new. Therelationship that Dr. Pflieger has established with Rockwall ISD is one of total involvement that goes beyond theinfluential aspects of being a doctor. He is actively involved in the school and hopes to establish a new system ofphysical education classes that can be offered to the school as a normal class schedule. Besides his involvement inRockwall IDS he is also extending his services to include; the Boys and Girls Club, Seventh Day Academy inMesquite, and the surround communities of Heath, and Forney. The newest change is to purchase additional space sothey can expand the services they currently offer.
The expansion of the facility is to purchase additional space that is next door to the building they are currently in.This additional space will give them an opportunity to include one new service. The new service that will be added issports training and conditioning, by adding this service they open a new door that includes those children and teensthat are actively involved in a variety of different sports. Although, the company is growing and their philosophy isbased on the current needs of one community and the ideas of a physician who has firsthand experience withchildhood obesity, a person can’t help but wonder how does all of this fit into the philosophy of the person writing thisnarrative?To help the reader understand the writers’ philosophies and beliefs some past information must be obtained beforeanswering the above question. As an ESL learner the struggles in those formative elementary years were difficultones. Since Spanish was the predominate language spoken in the home learning the English language was quiteconfusing. In addition to the language barriers the parents were not equipped to help with homework. The reason forthis inability was because the education level obtained was minimal and never exceeded the junior high level. As aresult education was not considered a priority and the pursuit of higher education beyond high school was neverpursued by the children. How does this tie into the philosophy’s and beliefs of physical education and the belief ofTrainUp?Philosophies and beliefs are formulated by a person’s past experiences and the changes a person wants to makehappen. These changes are the driving force that creates ideas and help each individual understand the strugglesthat children face in today’s society. Because of this need the idea of one man have evolved into a new concept thatstemmed from the staggering number of obese children he sees on a daily bases. The philosophy of helping childrenbecome more active by changing how they view physical activity and modernizing the concept to include technology.In other words, being physically active doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be in the traditional sense as we know it.The beliefs and philosophies that TrainUp stands for are the same views of the writer, it’s about change and progressand the need to address the future generation in a positive way. The concept presented by TrainUp seems to do justthat. With similar philosophies and beliefs, this adult person has chosen a career that is constantly changing andevolving in ways that are remarkable. Although the future of Physical Education Teachers seems uncertain the needfor qualified individuals will never change. Education is about quality and the traditional aspects of physical educationmust progress with the future.
In short, the visit to TrainUp had a way of making a person think outside the box in terms of the way PhysicalEducation is changing. The thought that Physical Education as we know it now could be a way of the past does openthe door for new concepts; but on the other hand it does leave some unanswered questions as well. The pastexperience of a person has a lot to do with the philosophy and beliefs they take with them on the journey to becomingan educator. The ideas and concepts of one person may have an impact on the way teachers teach their students inthe future. Although ideas change things, one concept will never change the Philosophy and belief that all childrendeserve the best physical education experience possible.

Why is Assessment Important to Me?I value assessment because it is an integral part of instruction, as it determines whether or notthe goals of education are being met. Assessment affects decisions about grades, placement,advancement, instructional needs. Assessment inspires us as teachers to ask these hardquestions: Are we teaching what we think we are teaching? Are students learning what they aresupposed to be learning? Is there a way to teach the subject better? When students arecollaborators in assessment, they develop the habit of self-reflection. They learn the qualities ofgood work, how to judge their work against these qualities, how to step back from their work toassess their own efforts and feelings of accomplishment, and how to set personal goals. Theseare qualities of self-directed learners, not passive learners. As teachers we model, guide, andprovide practice in self-assessment, students learn that assessment is not something separatefrom learning or something done to them, but a collaboration between teachers and students,and an integral part of how they learn and improve.
