Physical Education, Athletics & Kinesiology (PEAK)


PEAK - Program Summary

The value of the relationship between physical activity, nutrition and wellness is never greater than when the alignment of these life forces breakdown and disease manifest.  Our subject matter in Physical Education, Athletics and Kinesiology (PEAK) serves to protect and extend good health and wellness. Wellness, an essential component for life-quality, often becomes a priority only after it’s too late.  Health degradation and loss of life-quality resulting from sedentary and nutritional diseases in many cases are preventable and need not exist.  For the less fortunate who suddenly learn the value of PEAK subject matter after onset of preventable disease desire the return of good health greater than wealth, success or education.
