"We repeat, however, that health... should be the chief object of physical training." - Eugene Sandow, 1894
In many ages and societies past, physical education was held to be as beneficial as it was essential. At the Ravenswood Academy, fitness classes are offered in order to benefit the students' lives as well as prolong them. While various students will have differing interests, all of them are encouraged to keep physically fit and active. To some this will mean yoga and running while others may meet this goal by weight-lifting and rock climbing. In this case the end goal and benefits remain the same, regardless of the methods used for achieving them.
Workouts led at the Academy differ, but generally focus on body weight exercises conducted outdoors. Students are encouraged to lift, push and move their own body, increasing their strength, flexibility and speed. As a variety of fitness levels will no doubt be represented in a group setting, a student need not feel despondent for being below another's fitness level, as long as they are genuinely pushing to improve their own.
