KidFit is a program at Northwest Elementary School which is aimed at helping students academically as well as physically. The program was started last year by Erin Holloway, the physical eduation teacher at Northwest. The students who are selected for this program meet 30 minutes before school on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the entire school year. They engage in activities that raise their heart rate and produce good healthy blood flow to the brain.
Wednesday, September 9th, was the first day the students met, and they warmed up on the exercise equipment (treadmills, elipticals, bikes, tramplines, and punching bags). They also did sprints to get their heart rate up and then finished off with a good game of tag.
The KidFit program is a study to prove the correlation between physical exercise and improved brain function.
