Hi everyone! Are you looking for a easy, fun, structured physical education curriculum? I have a wonderful giveaway for you today courtesy the awesome people at Family Time Fitness!
What is Family Time Fitness?
“The Fitness 4 Homeschool curriculum is 260 professionally planned lessons, fully detailed with demonstration videos and sure to be the delight of your homeschool day.”
We’ve just started this program this year, and while we don’t get to it every day, the kids really love it when we do! I started out giving them the physical fitness assessment. The Family Time Fitness curriculum comes with a progress chart so you can record and see the improvements in your students!
Here we’re measuring the standing vertical jump of Tinker bell. Not sure if you can tell but we had to do it a couple times just to get her off the ground!
Most of the activities are super easy, and fun. And just in case you’re not sure about how to perform a certain activity, they give you links to videos so you can actually see how to do them as well.
There is a small list of extra items you will need over the course of the year. They include hula hoops, balls, cones, a measuring tape, stop watch, and an exercise mat. And that’s really it! Like I said the activities are really easy to do and I LOVE that! Honestly I don’t have much time to plan or prepare much else for homeschool and I have to say that the Family Time Fitness program makes it super easy for me!
Each lesson starts with a 5-10 minute warm-up followed by 10-15 minutes of activities and games, then a 3-5 minute cool down time. Here we’re doing leg swings and arm circles.
Below we’re doing a shuffle/skip/hop series. I set up 2 sticks on the ground so the kids would have some reference as to where to start and stop, then we took turns doing each skill.
What does the curriculum include?
- Each lesson is planned out for you from start to finish
- Detailed instructions and videos to help you teach the skills
- Easy to customize to your schedule
- Motivational reminders sent to your inbox
- Most activities can be done indoors or outdoors with minimal space requirements

Here we are doing our sit ups for the progress chart. Turbo lived up to his name going bonzai with the sit-ups! I actually had to stop him finally.
So What’s the cost? $99 for an entire year’s worth of activities.
You can also sign up for a 2 day FREE trial just to see if you like it!
Although the Teeny Tot bailed for this one, the dogs seemed to be interested in our stretching.
This was one of our favorite activities, the bear crawl!
