Fitness Programs for Kids, Teachers, and Parents

Elementary Schools (PK-5th)

Program Description

Harnessing the power of creative story telling and humor, Steve Ettinger motivates, educates and entertains students while teaching them lifelong lessons in health and fitness.

With a focus on freedom of exercise drawn from natural movement, Steve makes sure every student (and teacher) is actively learning, laughing, and moving during his 50-minute assemblies.

Students Will Learn:

    • Exercise makes you happy
    • Ways to tap into their own creative movements
    • Why staying active and eating healthy is important
    • Practical health skills
    • What really matters when it comes to fitness
    • How and why to care about what they put in their bodies
    • Ways to get family and friends moving

Before the Visit:

School administrators receive books, a detailed schedule and "cheat sheets" to help students and teachers prepare for Steve's visit.

During the Visit:

All of Steve's presentations include 10-20 minutes of age-appropriate exercises.  All movement can be done in a limited space (e.g. auditorium seating.)  Variations for special needs are available upon request.

After the Visit:

Additional online content accessible from school or home so students can continue to be healthy, happy, and active long after Steve's visit!

*Perfect for school wellness, PTA health events, National Physical Fitness Month celebrations
