Building good habits, like exercising regularly, is crucial to high school juniors and seniors. Many Sports Medicine students participate in organized sports during high school. Unless they continue that into college, many are faced with a drastic reduction in their activity, which can lead to weight gain and other health issues.

 

To address this, second-year students are charged with creating “Fitness Friday” activities. As a team, both AM and PM second-year students create circuits, or challenges, for the first-year students to complete. Using various fitness equipment such as stability balls, BOSU balls, weights and bands, students learn how to perform functional movements correctly and safely. Second-year students apply knowledge of anatomy to create a variety of exercises that show first-year students how to easily plan a workout that addresses the whole body.

 

Great job, second-year students:  Kay, Tristan, Ashley, Amber, Faith, Nathan (Sandwich); Skyler and Marie (Leland); Jake (Somonauk), Chris (Plano), Kylee (Indian Creek) and Jalyn (Yorkville).
