Fitness Circuits


If you haven’t used fitness circuits yet to supplement your PE program in the classroom or studio, you are in for a treat! The idea of a fitness circuit is to put on some music for 45 seconds, let the students (often 2 per station), do the activity that they are at and then, during a short pause in the music, move on to the next activity. Each activity is designed to be posted on a wall or set on a desk, and each one has a great visual cue so that circuits will work for young and old alike! Remember, how they do the activity isn’t as important as whether or not they are getting activity! So as long as they are moving, and not being a danger to themselves or others, let them move and groove!
