The LifeCipher 360 “Physical Health and Fitness” program provides students with the knowledge, understanding, skills, and capabilities for mental, social, and physical well-being that will enable them to achieve optimal health and maintain a physically active and healthy lifestyle now and in the future.
Physical Education is “education through the physical”. It aims to develop students’ physical competence and knowledge of movement and safety, and their ability to use these to perform in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. It also develops students’ confidence and skillset, especially in the areas of collaboration, communication, creativity, creative thinking, problem-solving abilities, and leadership. We make it fun and engaging!
Physical Fitness is the ability to do day-to-day activities without getting too tired. If you are physically fit, you can do these activities with energy and alertness, and still have enough energy left over to enjoy leisure activities or respond to emergencies. Physical fitness includes cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility, balance, speed, reaction time, and body composition.
Physical Activity is a form of exercise and bodily movements that use energy, are structured and repetitive, and performed with a purpose of improving or maintaining physical fitness. Children and adolescents should be physically active for at least 60 minutes daily. The guidelines for children and adolescents focus on three types of activity: aerobic (walking, running, martial arts), muscle-strengthening (tug-of-war, climbing, push-ups), and bone-strengthening (jumping rope, yoga, basketball). Each type is important for optimal health.
