WHY PHYSICAL ACTIVITY MATTERS AT SCHOOL
The benefits of physical exercise for students of all ages are beyond question. While the positive effects on concentration and memory are immediately evident, physical activity programmes have been correlated to improved academic performance and increased brain functions in the long run. A better learning experience and prevention of metabolic and cardiovascular disorders later in life:
with such promise, it’s no wonder schools and universities are fostering their own programmes. To succeed, though, they need a careful planning of spaces and equipment, while offering the most engaging experience to ensure long-term commitment. Our solutions help academic institutions of any size overcome these challenges.
