What is Fitness for Life: Elementary School?
The award-winning Fitness for Life middle and high school programs now have an elementary school companion program. Fitness for Life: Elementary School is an innovative multimedia program that facilitates total-school involvement by using physical education lessons, classroom activities and discussions, recess, before- and afterschool activities, and family nights to deliver appropriate physical activity, plus concepts to promote health-related fitness and active lifestyles.
Fitness for Life: Elementary School was developed by nationally and internationally recognized leaders Charles B. “Chuck” Corbin, Guy C. Le Masurier, Dolly D. Lambdin, and Meg Greiner. The program has been field tested and is based on the most current research and standards regarding health-related fitness, activity, wellness, and nutrition.
