About Us

Our Mission: Inspiring kids to lead healthy lifestyles through imagination, education, and movement.

Adventure to Fitness is the nation's #1 educational fitness program for kids. Animated and live action episodes get them exercising, learning, and laughing! Featuring the adventures of Mr. Marc, Mr. Clock and Professor Maddison, each episode challenges the audience to move and learn while foiling Mr. Lazy's latest dastardly plan as he seeks to rid the world of healthy kids. The program was developed with input from leading educational, medical, and parenting experts. Used and trusted by over 130,000 teachers!
