Life Fitness

Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body,
it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.

~ John F. Kennedy

The Life Fitness Department at Grayslake North has one dynamic goal for all students and that is to prepare students physically, emotionally, and socially so they are well prepared for life after secondary education.  The Life Fitness Staff believes that the continuous efforts to improve student growth on a daily basis will allow for each of our students to be successful in any endeavor they may wish to embark on. Within our department students will be provided with the essential skills, attitude and knowledge necessary to foster each student’s personal health, fitness and safety.  Through exposure to a wide variety of activities, students will gain the necessary knowledge to understand the importance of and make educated decisions around opportunities to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
