This afternoon option will focus on using a variety of activities to incorporate elements of muscular strength, muscular endurance, aerobic fitness, and flexibility.

Activities will include, but will not be limited to, walking, running, lifting weights, playing team sports, core training, and stretching. Many activities will be performed outdoors.

Students will work closely with EHS faculty members who, in cooperation with the head strength coach, will develop comprehensive and varied personal fitness programs designed to achieve personal strength and conditioning goals.
