Educator Mrs. Szwarc - Sanford fit

“I love FitBoost as a quick way to incorporate movement between lessons! The activities randomly change each time and have a large timer on the screen so students know when it's time to move on. It allows kids to move and reset their brains without taking up a lot of time!

The FitSchools lessons perfectly match with health standards. They are simple, quick lessons that come with an activity for students to show what they learned.”

Mrs. Szwarc, Sioux Falls, SD
