Fitness Factor

In this online activity, learners partner up to complete several physical exercises and assess their starting fitness level. Over the course of 6 weeks, learners practice the activities and record their improvement. This is a simple way to get young learners interested in practicing fitness. When learners set up a free account at Kinetic City, they can answer bonus questions at the end of the activity as a quick assessment. They can also keep track of their progress in all of the Kinetic City activities, and compare their progress to other participants worldwide.
