START THE SCHOOL YEAR “WRITE” 30-Day Fitness Challenge

It’s once again time for our students to Flourish with Fitness by taking the Start the School Year Write fitness challenge. This challenge offers a unique combination of physical exercises to promote strength and endurance, as well as writing and educational challenges to help stimulate the mind and fine motor skills in preparation for another great school year. What better way to get back into the flow of school!

The Start the School Year Write fitness challenge consist of a calendar and an alphabet fitness key.

Each day of the month will have a Word and Workout of the Day.  The words and workouts become longer and more challenging throughout the month. Added Bonus: On the back of the calendar, write five sentences or more using any of the words of the day. 


  1. Locate the Word of the Day on the calendar.
  2. Match each letter of the word to the “Alphabet Fitness Key” to decipher the workout.
  3. Complete the Workout of the Day.


Example: Art

 A30-Second High Plank, RHop on one foot 5 times, T10 Burpees

At the end of the month, students can turn in their calendars to receive an award certificate and a toe token. I also post their names on the door outside the gymnasium for added recognition and motivation. Our students are required to complete at least ten days in order to receive an award.
