Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) have partnered with Player’s Fitness and Performance in Frederick, Md. to continue a healthy environment outside the classroom.
Staff from the fitness center will help work with health and physical education teachers to develop a stronger curriculum and strength training. The facility will also provide an opportunity for FCPS staff to learn how fitness can help in the classroom and offer students an opportunity to learn about fitness.
“P.E. teachers and the athletic directors, they have a lot of things on their plate to worry about and if we can give our expertise in a very specific such as strength training and conditioning and youth fitness, then I think what we can bring can benefit them a lot,” said owner and founder of Player’s Fitness and Performance, Andrew Simpson.
The fitness center also awards scholarships to one male and one female student to allow them to train with the company’s staff.
