Are you looking to get your kids moving more? Have an alternate space to do some workouts besides the gym? Circuit Training is a fantastic option to boost your kids physical fitness! Use these cards in the classroom or the gym!
This resource has been a life-saver for times when we couldn’t go into the gym, or when the weather didn’t allow for us to go outside to get some exercise, have a brain break, or do our daily physical activity.
A set of individual cards/slides to print off (or project). Pick a few to put up around the room. Do some in-class circuit training. Play around with the times. I usually do 1-min of hard work, 20-30 sec switch to next station. Go around 2-3 times, or as time permits. All slides include a fun illustration/clip art!
