This excel worksheet reinforces the focus for students to know how to take their pulse. It is a template for all areas of sport and activity. It has been used effectively in jump rope, basketball and WOD lessons and engages students to work out at their own pace based on their heart rate.
This activity worksheet is an interactive class exercise for students who have at least a general idea of health-related fitness concepts (e.g. 12 years of age and older). Each student has a fitness topic bingo sheet and a pen. Students mingle around the room collecting signatures from other students who can say “YES” to a topic in a particular box. The game can stop when someone has five-in-a-row or when someone fills his or her entire card with at least one signature in each box (my favorite way to play). This activity is a nice way to get students interacting and learning about each other. It’s also a nice lead in to discuss a wide variety of fitness-related topics. For example, eating habits, exercise habits, fitness levels, and fitness practices. You can also take the idea and create other signature bingo cards for different subject areas.

Just a few of my favourite fitness games. These resources are great to use as a warm up activity or as part of a fitness unit and can be used for upper primary students through to middle secondary students. The Match Up activity is a practical way to cover theory content or can be aimed at a revision exercise that keeps students active. The activity can be modified based on the age group or content area.
Here is a booklet for the Unit 11 Development of Personal Fitness I made for my BTEC students which has made the unit much easier to teach in a practical setting. I hope it’s of help – it can be easily tweaked and developed to suit your class, taste and needs in the department. Please contact me via @PE4Learning or add me on twitter if you need any help or clarification – it will be a pleasure to help!
This lesson is aimed at gaining pupils understanding of the effect that aerobic and muscular endurance exercise can have on their skill level. Pupils completed a number of skill games/test/tasks prior to taking part in a 10-20 minute bout of step aerobics. Immediately following the step aerobics the pupils completed the test/games/tasks again to see if their scores would differ. The premise behind the lesson was to look at a professional athlete and think about how difficult it is for them to keep their skill level up for a prolonged period of time. Both PDF and Microsoft Word formats have been provided for your convenience. Please share your thoughts/feedback on this resource by commenting below. Thankyou.
A simple, ready to use worksheet to record in pairs the results of a selection of boxing-based fitness drills.
Each exercise is given a name that describes the activity, which can be easily changed as required.
This is a resource that lays out at least a 2 hour lesson based on the Olympic velodrome races. It was planned by a member of my team and has been tried and tested by three of us now and the kids love it! Teamwork, task roles and literacy all built in. You do need bikes though!
