Merchiston Prep having fun with their core

Children today face many challenges, and together with mental and emotional preparation, physical fitness is crucial. At Merchiston, development of health and wellness is a core principle, and a conditioning programme has been created for the whole school. Boys participate in grassroots fitness training using own body weight and resistance techniques, focused on core strength, speed, agility and endurance.
Is the programme working? The answer is YES! The boys feel good about themselves no matter what their interests or talents. Improved classroom and sportsfield performance shows that a healthy, strong body really does make for a healthy mind, and future.
