Kinetic Wellness

The Kinetic Wellness Department promotes a student-centered, performance-based curriculum model to promote healthy lifestyles for students. The Department incorporates research which shows that physical activity promotes fitness, enhances performance, and increases overall cognitive development. Students are taught why the activities implemented within the classroom support overall well being and a healthy lifestyle, further incentivizing them to participate.
