Middle School Fitness Center




The Middle School fitness center opened in 2012 with enthusiasm and excitement. The equipment in the center includes exercise bikes, a treadmill, weight machines, stability balls, weight bars, handheld weights, gel medicine balls, aerobic steps and jump ropes. The Physical Education Department introduced the equipment to the students and taught them how to safely and appropriately use each piece of equipment. The students also learned which fitness component they were improving while working out on the different pieces of equipment. Students had the opportunity to use the fitness center during physical education class and it was an integral part of our physical fitness unit. In addition, the fitness center was open during period 1 activities.


For the upcoming school year, we look forward to teaching students how to use an individualized fitness program, based on their individual needs and giving extra assistance to those students who fall into the “Needs Improvement” category of our fitness tests. We have also been fortunate to receive additional money to purchase new equipment for the upcoming school year. New this year, students will be able to use 5 rowers and a muscular strength/endurance workout system.


The fitness center has been a great addition to our middle school physical education program and we look forward to the upcoming fitness year.
