Roll in the NEW YEAR is back and better than ever with an improved look and a new video demonstrating each of the exercises.

Are you ready for the NEW YEAR? Do you and your students need the motivation to jump-start a new exercise regime? Then it’s time for the ROLL IN THE NEW YEAR fitness challenge for the month of January! Get back to some basic movements using a pair of dice. The Roll in the New Year fitness challenge consists of exercises ranging from strengthening the upper and lower body to increasing aerobic endurance. Here’s what the challenge entails:

Directions: Roll two dice and add the numbers together. The sum of the dice determines the exercise movement. Your workout should consist of at least 10 rolls of the dice. However, if you’re feeling extra motivated, roll a few extra times to intensify your workout!

Roll a 2 – 20 Star Jumps

Roll a 3 – 20 Side-to-Side Jumps

Roll a 4 – 10 Burpees

Roll a 5 – 10 Squat Jumps

  1. I’m planning on doing Run Every Day (RED) January. This looks good for some variety though.

    • jcahill – I have been teaching physical education for 27 years. I began my career teaching in Washington, DC before moving to Atlanta, Georgia to teach at Trinity School. I have a passion for keeping kids healthy and moving during each PE lesson, and throughout their lives. I’m a firm believer that recess is a right and NOT a privilege. Please check out and join my Facebook group called Keeping Kids in Motion. I am happily married and have three beautiful children who are constantly KEEPING ME IN MOTION!
