What Is The Philosophy Behind The Fitness Lab?

  • It is the philosophy in The Fitness Lab that every child or person is or can be an athlete and that athletes move their bodies in a large variety of ways.

    The world is full of a large variety of athletic activities.  The goal of TFL is to teach, expose and encourage the students of RIS about the advantages of leading a healthy and active lifestyle. 

    Hopefully, this introduction in RIS will translate into habits that will last a lifetime and create a population of happy, healthy and active adults.

    At this level fitness for children should look and feel like play as much as possible.  We do not want it to look too much like their parent's fitness classes.

    Finally, numerous studies find that students that engage in regular physical activity and who are fit are able to concentrate more and perform better in school.
