Health and well-being has always been and always WILL be a major priority for the human race. Our ability to physically respond to our needs and desires will determine our overall happiness as a society. Despite the uncertainty of the future, the desire to do the things we want to do will continue to be reliant on the intake of quality fuel and the pursuit of activity.
The concept of functional fitness (practicing movements that help us be great at everyday life) feeds into this and IS my personal vision to prepare students for the life that awaits them. Focusing on functional fitness on a daily basis will allow students to form a healthy relationship with physical activity and eliminate personal fitness as a barrier to happiness in the future.
