Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our students need to be physically active; it helps them learn and process information better, as well as make them healthier. My classroom aims to promote learning and lifelong fitness to improve a child's life.
We, as a nation, are becoming increasingly unhealthy; diabetes, heart disease, and obesity are becoming major epidemics with our kids and they are all preventable and controllable.
Our kids need to get active. We need to help them change their lifestyles! My students are Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade. They attend an inner city elementary school. They are great students and love physical education. My students love to move and always enjoy the activities I do with them.
This plyometric jump box will be used by the school sports teams to help with physically conditioning and training. Plyometric jump boxes help to develop explosive muscles for better physical performance.
Building explosiveness in muscles will help to create more athleticism in student athletes.
This will help create more success on the field. This will help to develop core and leg muscles to create maximum force. It also requires athletes to build balance skills and develop stabilizer muscles. All of these things will help students to become more effective athletes. Student athletes will see the benefits of using the plyo box to train.
