26. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
The insructor could maybe help out students more, get kids more involved and teach more about how weightlifting is good throughout life, and should be done to maintain a "healthy" status and to avoid problems with aging.
needs to be more directly involved in helping each person determine a routine that pushes their strengths and focuses on their weaknesses
be more interactive
He was a good instructor
have one or two more organized days of his own demos
be more attentive and not hang out with only the women in class
after every class , everyone should right down what they did for the day. what exercise , reps , sets, and weight they did.
27. What two or three single words best describe this instructor?
Nice, tardy and quiet.
knowledgable, friendly
quiet, smart, nice

33. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Make sure whoever is teaching it wants to be there as much as the student, and is there to offer HELP when needed or asked for.
I believe this class could be improved by helping individuals, depending on class size, push their potential. More direction could be used to figure out what needs to be worked on, in addition to proper technique/form.
more interactive instructors
I would appreciate a longer period to work out in. 50 minutes is a rip off. Tuesday and Thursday classes are suppossed to be 1 hour and 15 minutes. Dumb UH system. Jerks.
n/a
more time and more regemented
To be more structured so that I could be more motivated.
There never seemed to be any 1 max rep at the end of the course so i'm not sure how improvement over the course was measured. Mayb a little test at the end for strength.
