The fitness routines in each DVD have been created for the two age groups of 4-9 and 10-14. This will ensure that the exercises are appropriate for the skills and interests of each age group.Busy teachers will be able to easily use these routines in their classrooms without needing extensive equipment or instruction time. Students will watch the DVD routines and follow along with Carol as she demonstrates each exercise. Teachers will have their choice of five complete 'out-of-the-box' fitness routines and a simple warm up and cool down routine.Teachers will have access to downloadable PDFs of each activity and routines. These PDFs will contain descriptions of each exercise along with 'teacher tips' on how to best present and manage activities to their students.These two DVDs go beyond the majority of existing children fitness programmes by providing complete fitness routines rather than a laundry list of physical activities that require non-PE teachers to develop their own routines. Each DVD contains 5 routines which teachers can mix and match to avoid boring the children.
