Summary: For years, K-12 teachers have used "Physical Best" as an effective and proven tool in implementing health-related physical activity. The program gets students active and keeps them active--not just in class, not just for the school year, but for their lifetime.

With activities crafted and used by physical educators across the country, "Physical Best" has been used to show students that physical fitness can be fun and that all students ca

Now, "Physical Best" has gotten even better.

All activities are consistent with the new physical activity guidelines for youth, developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"Physical Best" still emphasizes personal responsibility and provides educational progressions that help students take ownership of their health-related fitness. It still includes assessment tools, and it supports the 2004 NASPE National Physical Education standards.
