Watch this interview with Chuck Corbin, Arizona State University College of Health Solutions professor, as he highlights a study done 20 years after students participated in the Fitness for Life education program. Chuck describes how such programs help students take responsibility for their own physical activity, fitness, and health. The study asks the question of whether there is any long-term value to the fitness education approach in physical education. The findings supported that when students learn to make self-directed decisions, far more of them remain physically active and healthy throughout their adult lives.
