CREATING MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS

My students need a squat rack to expand knowledge about exercising. They also need dumbbells and plates to create more opportunities to get stronger.

My Students

Every day we start with good things to create a positive atmosphere in our classroom. We then move on to stretches and warm-ups. After that, I introduce my students to new workouts, in which I am limited because of lack of exercise equipment. Then the students have the rest of class to workout.

My students are amazing individuals who are very enthusiastic about getting stronger and healthier.

They motivate one another and myself with their positive attitudes about school and our class. Our school is like one big family. Everything we do, we do as a team. Students help each other in academics and sports. Although we don't have too many opportunities open to us, we do our best every day to create more and more open doors.

My Project

With the equipment that we are trying to get for our classroom, students will be able to use things like the squat rack, dumbbells, plates, and the Olympic bar to learn and to practice new workouts rather than to just read or watch videos about them. They will expand their knowledge and I will be able to provide them with more opportunities in this class.

My students are super enthusiastic and on fire to get stronger and healthier by taking part in our personal fitness class.

Although they are already doing a great job exercising, I would like to create more opportunities for them to get stronger with the equipment I am trying to get for them. This equipment will make a huge difference in our classroom and will change things a bit to make it more interesting and more fun to workout.
