  Imagine a physics class that doesn't just get you ready for exam time, but teaches you 
true health and wellness in mind body spirit!  Before he was a physics instructor, C.X. 
has trained at such prestigious clubs as BSC, Ywca and institutions like Worcester Polytechnic Institute!
 
  This is a condensed course  one week long (5 hours a day for 5 days) designed to introduce the concepts and principles of Physics.  Students study a wide variety of topics in Physics that are components of the major themes of “energy and matter”.   Below is a typical example of the curriculum (scheduling may vary depending on time of day):


Grades: Elementary School: (Difficulty level varies per age group).

 

If you're looking to really excel your athletic game and technical ability in sports AND excel your academic readiness for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education, Fitness Physics is the leader in blending these fields.  Our bootcamps combine the experience of  learning the basic laws of physics through creative lessons, games, exercise simulations.  Imagine your child playing, running around -- while subliminally combining physiology, physics and academics through fun activities!   Kids learn laws of physics by seeing their seeing them come to life through their athletic ability.    

  As not just a physics professor, but a personal trainer as well, C.X. teaches clients mastery of the laws of physics by action and instruction in a way you’ve never experienced before!

Benefits for the program

  • Customized routines that simulate the laws of physics and science education that you're trying to learn 

  •  Students get  introduced to all the basic the laws of physics through the power of seeing their own kinematics perform the motions.

  •  Get a GREAT exercise routine supplied by a physics professor and professional personal training!

  • Learn without worrying about complicated word problems, hard tests,  and hard math
