Measuring Fitness at home

Online Learning

Fitness is critical to a student's growth and development. Whether in a physical education class or at home, students need at least 60 minutes of daily physical activity to optimal health and academic performance. 

FitnessGram by The Cooper Institute is an assessment and reporting tool usually reserved for physical education teachers and administrators with access to the accompanying software. But with more students participating in virtual learning, unlocking these resources is important to make it easier for anyone to understand the importance of annual physical fitness assessment.
