LEARNING DOESN’T HAPPEN FROM THE NECK UP, BUT FROM THE FEET UP - MIKE KUCZALA
Kids stay in shape and get better overall health, cardiovascular training will also improve memories, intelligence, and ability to process information (brain functions), and decrease the risk for general dementia and Alzheimer’s later in life. Schools may also see fewer disciplinary problems and raised academic work. Using a heart rate system when working with students has proven to have great benefits. This is partly about ensuring that students are not too low in heart rate when exercising, but perhaps more important is that they do not actually work with too high intensity. This can actually produce the opposite effect with tired (fatigue) students. However, the educational benefits of having a heart rate system are perhaps the greatest benefit. School classes that have heart rate training during school time are more concentrated and focused on the lessons. Work in a classroom environment is enhanced.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR BRAIN IS TO MOVE
When using wearables and heart rate systems that are “cool” and providing real-time feedback during class, students want to participate and enjoy physical education in a new and exciting way! The ACTIVIO Solutions provides the opportunity for objective assessment and personalized programs when used for cardio training. When using heart rate and zone training to level the playing field, physical educators are able to truly assess student health, fitness and motivation. Regular exercise improves a person’s mindset. This works great to increase your motivation and alertness, which are essential during studying. Physical activity enhances the connection between brain cells. This will help you retain the information better. However, the benefits don’t stop here. Workouts can stimulate the development of new nerve cells. Dr. John J. Ratey
Intensity and motivation
If you have a heart rate system, the benefits are great. Schools will notice a marked difference in the intensity and motivation of students when the system is active and visible. Being able to see their heart rate also creates joy and motivation.
Aerobic Exercises for Kids
Aerobic exercise is movement that gets your blood pumping faster around your whole body. It makes your heart beat faster. It also makes your lungs take in more oxygen. This causes you to breathe faster during the exercise.
Aerobic exercise is important for kids. It helps keep their heart, lungs, and blood vessels healthy. It can also help them keep or get to a healthy weight. Kids who exercise tend to have:
• Better heart and lung fitness
• Lower levels of body fat
• Stronger bones and muscles
• Fewer symptoms of depression
• Less chance of chronic diseases later in life
• More focused when being in school
• Able to remember better what is learned in class room
• Enhanced cognitive abilities.
