My Students

Have you ever heard of a Fit Lab? My students are ready to get a full-body workout as a daily routine.

I teach elementary physical education in a k-5 Title I school.

The majority of my students come from a low-income, single family home. A small percentage of my students participate in after school sports so many of them do not get the recommended 60 minutes of daily activity.

My Project

With the addition of the fitness equipment consisting of the dumbbells, rhinoskin medicine ball, and the battling rope, I hope to design a Fit Lab in our school. After teaching my students and teachers how to utilize these resources, they would be able to incorporate fitness in their daily schedule.

With your donations to my Fit Lab project, my students will be able to take a fitness break during the day to improve their academic scores, while recognizing the health benefits as well.
