Building Healthy Foundations for Middle School Students

My students need a variety of light resistance (no greater than 25 lbs) Dumbbell weights to assist them in upper and lower body strength exercises.

My Students

These are middle school students from a small rural community. They are eager to learn new activities and always excited when we bring them new games, exercises, and activities! They have jumped right into a new class where they learn about different types of exercise and implementing a healthy, active lifestyle. They have all benefited from this class so much that they always ask when they get to do it again! These are students who make good use of the materials that we provide them to use and appreciate them

My Project

Fitness is a brand new class at WSMS designed to educate students on all aspects of personal and physical fitness. I am an advocate of physical fitness and well-being and believe it is essential to promoting healthy lifestyles. Although students have reaped the benefits of this new class, the lack of necessary equipment to strengthen individual components of fitness is hindering maximum potential.

Students are currently very excited about this new course offered and would love to experience more workouts and exercises catered to muscular strength and endurance.

We are limited to mostly body weight/very light resistance when exercising. Even though these are beneficial movements at this age, fitness is a subject that requires frequent variation to meet the needs of each individual. The requested Dumbbell set will provide us with several new exercises to include in our workouts designed to strengthen different muscle groups.

We use every piece of equipment we have to find new ways to exercise. One of our main goals is to introduce students to multiple types of fitness so that it may spark an interest that may open the door to being active outside of school.
