Fitness for Life: Elementary School is an innovative multimedia package that facilitates total school involvement by using physical education lessons, classroom activities and discussions, recess, before- and afterschool activities, and even family nights to deliver appropriate physical activity as well as concepts to promote health-related fitness and active lifestyles.
The Fitness for Life Physical Activity Pyramid for Kids Posteris a colorful and informative reminder to children of the need for an appropriate mix of various types of physical activity. Developed by Chuck Corbin, creator of the successful Fitness for Life program, this poster is an excellent tool for teaching key concepts of physical activity and fitness. The poster reinforces information presented in the Fitness for Life, Physical Best, and Fitnessgram programs.
Put the Fitness for Life Physical Activity for Kids Poster on the wall of your elementary school gym, multipurpose room, cafeteria, hallway, or weight room to provide your students with an overview of a healthy, active lifestyle.
