December Printable Fitness Challenge Calendar

Our December Fitness Challenge Calendar is here!

We teamed up with the Alliance For A Healthier Generation to create this fitness calendar for the month of December 2018. Here is the link to the download:

Printable Fitness Calendar December 2018

Students are challenged each day to participate in the activities listed on the calendar. For December, the exercises include pushups, crunches, arm circles, and bicycles. Each week, the number of repetitions for each fitness exercise increases. Please keep in mind the number of repetitions is meant as a guide, and can be adapted as needed based on age group and skill level.

Wednesdays are Cardio Day, where students will spend the alloted time either jumping rope, practicing their hula hoop skills, jogging in place, or a combination of these.

The calendar also includes task cards for each challenge on pages 2 and 3, so you can show your students images of the correct way to do the activities.

Staying Active During Winter Break

Winter Break is a great opportunity for kids to spend time excercising with their family and friends. Encourage and challenge students to spend time outdoors (depending on the weather) and increase their physical activity over break. They can get together as a group to complete the challenges each day. Send students home with the printed fitness calendar, and if you have a parent newsletter, make sure to mention the calendar and the importance of staying active during vacation.

Tip: Use the printable worksheet below from Active Schools to fill out the exercises or activities each week. The sheet allows you to record the activity on each day of the week! This is a great resource to go along with our calendar this month. Download the printable worksheet here.
