Quick 3 Minute fitBoost Activity Breaks:

One of my absolute favorite resources on fit4Schools is the fitBoost — a QUICK and fun 3 minute activity break! The fitBoost is perfect for busy days when you are short on time, but need an effective way to refresh. Each fitBoost session is made up of a group of randomly selected warm-up, move, and cool down activities that are timed for 1 minute each.

Not only does fitBoost provide an activity break that is quick to do, I love that it also features exercises that do not require any equipment. There are lots of options that and can be done with a small amount of space. Clicking fitBoost like spinning a prize wheel of exercise activities!
