The need for physical fitness classes
Our children are suffering from the health effects of no or non effective fitness in their lives. Many will contract type 2 diabetes (once only seen in adults) and have their lives cut short from the many health related problems. Why are we not taking their fitness education seriously? Should it not hold a higher priority than any area we educate them in?
We have been assuming the sporting activity we have them involved in is getting them in good physical condition. Studies show that sport related activities have a very low impact on their overall physical fitness. Fitness is accomplished by testing, training and education in strength, flexibility, endurance and nutrition.
Extensive research, in the California Department of Education content and standards for physical education, was done as was program availability for non traditional public education. The non traditional public education families face a costly and virtually impossible task to be able to meet these needs in their students education. Not only do they face this insurmountable hurdle but also do not have the funding available to them that would satisfy this need.
HALO Athletics fitness program is proven highly effective and we are proud to be instrumental in prolonging the lives of children and defeating the health affects from this unnecessary condition. Please support your only non profit, public and charitable organization in physical fitness education by enrolling your students or donating to our financial assistance program to help families in need.
