Fit Kids Linked to Better Grades and Better Test Scores

Posted on December 10, 2012

My 3-year-old did her first race this past summer. Ran the whole 1K. :)

“Look, your fitter kids are the ones who will do better on tests, so that would argue against cutting physical activity from the school day.┬áThat’s the exciting thing, is if we can get people to listen and have some impact on public policy.”

“Fit kids are more likely to be fit adults, and now we see that fitness is tied to academic achievement. So hopefully the fitness and the success will both continue together.”
