Youth Fitness at Evolve

A sedentary life and poor eating habits can lower kids’ performance in the classroom and start a cycle of health problems later in life.
Studies show that kids who exercise see significant boosts in intelligence-test scores and core subjects at school, compared to their inactive peers.

Primarily, when students are introduced early to a regiment of exercise they become more focused and ready to learn, due to an increased oxygen flow to the brain combined with an increase in neurotransmitters. The other side benefit of exercising is that it improves mood, lowers aggression, and increases attention.

Evolve will be adopting The Spark curriculum for our physical education programs. SPARK was designed to involve ALL children to be more active, incorporate social skills, and emphasize both health-related fitness and skill development.
