P.E/Kid’s Fit – Mrs. Kaderli

TREA in Cedar Park will offer a Kid’s Fit (dynamic P.E) class. Children will be encouraged to work together as they go through obstacle courses, exercise stations, speed and agility drills using body weight or cardiovascular intervals. Every class will encourage team work and individual challenges in a fun and engaging atmosphere. The end of class will be used to focus on stretching and flexibility, calming our bodies. As God made each of us with unique gifts and interests, competitive sports is not for everyone but maintaining a healthy lifestyle is. The ultimate goal is to inspire each student to learn about maintaining personal fitness, as well as reinforcing healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
