Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

One of the less well known components of fitness is something called body composition. But what is body composition? Body composition is the ratio of your fat to the rest of your body mass. Body composition does not necessarily have to do with your weight. It's measured through a series of scales that are really high tech and really specific. They can even be done underwater. By engaging in regular exercise, whether it's flexibility, muscular endurance, aerobic, anaerobic exercise, you are improving your body composition. You are burning those fat cells and you are improving your muscles and your tissues in your body. It's really important to have a good body composition, not only because it'll help you see better performance in physical activities and fitness, but often because it lowers your risk of things like diabetes and heart disease.
