BOKS Canada has made getting our students active easy and fun. The ready-made trainer guides, and online resources, make it easy to plan a session I know will make a difference in the kids. The mix between the skill of the week and a few games make it a fun combination for the students to learn something new. I have never seen students so excited to do the plank, or burpees. We do ours during lunch hour, and the students always walk away with a burst of energy and are ready to learn in the afternoon.
