For Railyard Fitness owner and founder Lee Spieker, exercise in the classroom is anything but unconventional; it is an educational method that according to recent health reports from The Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, shows a positive relationship between exercise and improved academic performance, as well as parents noticing reduced disciplinary issues.
Spieker recently launched a website to inform parents and teachers of the benefits and potential when exercise is used in the classroom. The website offers a series of video testimonials from parents and teachers in Colorado who have promoted physical activity in the classroom and that have witnessed positive results.
“Exercise in the classroom is an easy, free and effective way to get students engaged. Children are excited about learning about fun and functional exercise,” Spieker says. “They are developing the necessary movement skills they require for sports and safe play and parents have recognized improved state of mind after school.”
“We’re constantly speaking to teachers and parents about the improvements,” says Spieker. Railyard Fitness owner actively educates the public about the benefits of classroom exercise and specifically focuses on parent community involvement. The website offers information on how to request exercise in your child’s, grandchild or community classroom. To learn more, visit http://classroomexercise.info
