Fitness Fundamentals

fitness fundamentalsPediatric Potentials’ Fitness Fundamentals program enables students to develop and maintain cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and body composition. Evidence shows that even small amounts of aerobic activity have a positive impact on adacemic performance Being fit can enhance neurocognition and allow complex thinking in young people, and aid in the ability to coordinate actions and thoughts crisply. Our PTs work with children from elementary school through high school age  to address the “couch potato” culture. We keep kids motivated by incorporating exergaming activities like Wii and Wii Fit (including Yoga and Balance Boards) and fun interactive video games, interactive treadmill, Game Bike, and PlayStation physically interactive tools such as Dance Dance Revolution and Eye Toy games. 

We also prepare students in the skills necessary to achieve recognition in the President’s Challenge.  Schools today often fail to prepare youngsters in the skills - including curl-ups, shuttle run, endurance run/walk, pull-ups or push-ups, and V-sit -needed to achieve Presidential recognition for fitness. Pediatric Potentials’ Fitness Fundamentals program enables students to develop the body ability and skills to have their achievements recognized by the President’s Challenge, can help make schools aware of required statutory accommodations that may be needed for students with special needs, and motivates children for lifelong healthy physical activity.
