As promised we are starting a new blog series this week called The E Factor. This series is an opportunity for you to see all that sets Ensworth apart as an independent school and maybe even learn something new about some of the classes offered. One of the most impressive things at the high school is its state-of-the art fitness center. Now, I know most of us have peeked inside when cheering on our favorite football team in the fall, but did you know each student has their own personalized fitness program?
Ensworth’s fitness program is unique in that each student participates in fitness for four years as part of the curriculum. Students have individualized fitness programs and spend at least three hours per week with skilled instructors utilizing the fitness center, mat room, gyms, and the natatorium. During their senior year students are given the opportunity to design their own fitness program!
“Our fitness program assists all students in maximizing their full potential physically and athletically as well as increasing their nutritional awareness. This approach prepares our students to develop healthy lifestyle choices for years to come,” Jeremy Garrett, fitness department chair.
