Instructor Haley Wolf has applied and been accepted for a grant for $500 from Midwest Energy to buy heart rate monitors for her students.

“In classes, a lot of times there is a lack of effort and a lack of participation as a key of that,” Wolf said. “These heart rate monitors have the goal of getting students more motivated and get better participation in class.”

Wolf said the monitors may also be used as a learning tool.

“It gets them thinking about what types of activities get them in an aerobic zone and into your target heart rate,” Wolf said. “It gets them to think about, if they are just standing around, how they are not really reaping the benefits of the class.”

Wolf had to go through an online application to receive the grant, which asked questions about what the monitors would be used for.

The money that has been provided has been a great start towards the total the department must have for all of the monitors needed, Wolf said.

“Midwest Energy was very generous to do so,” Wolf said. “Hopefully we can get more towards it. We would need about $6500 in total.”
