Keeping Fit at the Canyon!

Over the past few years, we have been implementing physical activity outside of P.E. classes, such as Activity Breaks in the Classroom and Enrichment Days on Early Release Days. It has been a great success for kids to be active in the classroom to be better performers and thinkers. We also started a Functional Fitness Program, where we do Workouts of the Day every Tuesday and Thursday. It has been a great program for students and teachers to learn a variety of functional fitness exercises that work the entire body and keep everyone in excellent shape! Also, the workouts change every day, so it doesn’t get old and boring for the students!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Everybody is becoming more physically fit! Students enjoy the workouts and we hear their stories of how they take the WOD's home and workout with their families! That is the whole point! Students write down the workouts in their notebooks, that way they have them for the rest of their lives to share with family and friends and do on their own. Teachers have also "dialed in" to participate in the workouts!
