It’s strange how dreams get under your skin and give your heart a test for what’s real and what’s imaginary.

Find your Fit Activity of the Day: Mountain Height Fitness
- Exercise balls
- Medicine balls
- A list of the heights of the various peaks of Himalayan Peaks
Introduction: Climbing to a summit of a mountain takes a lot of strength and conditioning. Climbers spend hours of a day skiing or hiking up a mountainside while carrying a heavy backpack and sometime even pulling a sled as well. They must be fit and ready for the expedition therefore this activity will be base around fitness.
Activity: Pick out 6-10 peak heights (depending on class size and equipment on hand) and set up stations around the gym. At each station the students will have to complete the height of the peak but doing 4 fitness related activities. For example, the height of Mount Everest is 8848 m therefore, the students can complete 8 jumping jacks, 8 sit ups, 4 burpees and 8 high knees and then move onto another station. You should pick out 4 activities for each station but let the students decide what activity they want to do for each number of the height. Continue rotating the students through as many stations as you wish.
