•apply the factors that motivate their daily activities (e.g., competing, attaining improved fitness levels) to their personal action plans;         
Physical Fitness        
•improve or maintain their personal fitness levels by participating in vigorous fitness activities for sustained periods of time (e.g., a minimum of fifteen minutes) without undue fatigue;

•assess their own levels of physical fitness on an ongoing basis, comparing with past performances, and apply the information to their personal goals;         
Living Skills
