Learning Resource Type

Classroom Resource

Racetrack Fitness

Subject Area

Physical Education




Five or six fitness activities are arranged in the center (the pit) of a large circle outlined with marking spots (the race track). If desired, tumbling mats can be placed in the center of the race track to delineate the pit stop area. Students work with a partner and alternate running (or doing other locomotor movements) or rope jumping around the race track and going to the pit to perform a strength or flexibility exercise. A different exercise should be performed each time so students assure variety in their workout.

A demonstrative video is included in this resource.
