OUR PROGRAM


What is Adventure to Fitness, and why should I sign up?

Adventure to Fitness is the nation’s #1 educational fitness program, now used by over 130,000 teachers across more than 25,000 schools, and the nation’s top children’s hospitals and organizations. Registering for the site is 100% free and grants you limited access to 2 Adventure Videos, interactive quizzes, printable activities, Teacher and Parent Guides, Episode Guides and Common Core Alignment Guides. When you sign up for one of our Access Passes, you receive full access to our Program Library, including our full-length Adventure Videos that kids love! You can access our site and stream videos from any internet-connected computer, smart board, or mobile device. No need to worry about losing or scratching your DVDs!

Each full-length Adventure Video provides 30 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, while taking kids on a fun adventure to a fascinating part of the world or time in history. Each episode also has Teacher and Parent Guides with suggested activities to reinforce the general and National Standard-aligned lessons in the episode! Subject matters include history, geography, ELA, math, science, and of course, health!

What age group is best for using Adventure to Fitness?

Although our program was originally created and mapped to the National Standards for kids in Kindergarten through 5th Grade (or approx. 5 to 11 years old), we have seen and heard from teachers and parents that younger kids (3-4 years old) and older kids (through 6th Grade) also enjoy and benefit from our program.

What research/evidence supports the use of Adventure to Fitness?

Research shows that physically active children perform better academically, socially, and behaviorally. According to an Active Living Research study, exercise not only increases attention and focus in the short term, but has also been shown to have significant effects in the long term, specifically in the areas of mathematics, reading, and writing, as long as regular exercise is sustained.” page!

In addition, we continue to conduct research programs alongside academic institutions on the effectiveness of our program. Stay tuned as we collect and release our research outcomes!

If your school or organization would like to apply to participate in an Adventure to Fitness research or pilot program, please email teacher@adventuretofitness.com.

How widely used is the Adventure to Fitness program?

Our program is used around the world! We have over 130,000 teachers across more than 25,000 schools from over 30 countries! And this number is growing every single day!.

Do kids really learn while doing Adventure to Fitness?

Absolutely! Each Adventure Video is packed with tons of information and facts. When we visit classrooms, we hear from kids that one of their favorite things about Adventure to Fitness is that they learn fun facts about nutrition, geography, animals, history, and much more!

Like any learning, kids learn best with repeated exposure to Adventure to Fitness, which typically include multiple viewings and the use of our supplemental activities and worksheets that reinforce our Adventure Videos. Because we keep our episodes fast-paced and action-packed, kids need to focus their full attention to follow the story, absorb the facts, and perform the movements. Fewer distractions mean better absorption and retention!

My kids don’t exactly love to exercise. Why should I expect them to like Adventure to Fitness?

If something is fun, kids are more engaged. This is something we see each time we visit a classroom using Adventure to Fitness, and it’s also what we’re hearing from teachers and parents across the nation. We hear that their kids want to do Adventure to Fitness more often and use it longer than other exercise-only activities. The kids love the adventure themes, our characters, and the kid-friendly animation, and they’re able to see clearly how each exercise should be executed with proper form by watching Mr. Marc and our other characters.

Check out how excited the kids are about Adventure to Fitness in our intro video here!

What are other teachers and parents saying who have used Adventure to Fitness with their kids?

That’s a great question! Here are a few examples:

“The episodes truly are FUN for kids and adults. I have an Adventure to Fitness club after school for which 100 students (out of 500) have signed-up; we have teachers and parents that come to get their own exercise. The kids LOVE it as a fitness activity and they don’t realize they are actually exercising.” - Mr. Hemberger, PE teacher - Las Vegas, NV

“Adventure to Fitness has been a godsend to our Special Education classroom. Our students with special needs cannot always go outside due to health issues and/or behavioral difficulties… After a 30-minute episode, my students are more relaxed and can focus better. I have also noted a slight decrease in aggression and defiance.” - Ms. Toscano, special needs teacher - Riverside, CA

“Adventure to Fitness has been life-changing. My son struggles with his weight and your program has given him the courage, self-esteem, and fitness instruction to improve his habits with pride and dignity. Thank you so much!” - Megan, parent - Chicago, IL
