At Georgia’s largest private school south of Atlanta, administrators, faculty and staff have done away with the traditional P.E. program in favor of something different.

“We were looking for a better way to promote fitness with our kids,” says Chris Spurlock, middle-school assistant principal at Savannah Christian Preparatory School.

The school has begun incorporating CrossFit to “huge” results.

“We just made the commitment we were going to go ahead and better our entire P.E. program by committing to CrossFit,” Spurlock says. “Our kids are engaged. They’re seeing improvement, confidence builds. For us, this is the prefect program.”

CrossFit Kids co-creator Jeff Martin says he and his wife, Mikki, were pleased to see the school’s program was just like those found at CrossFit affiliates.

“This is what you see in a CrossFit Kids gym—kids giving this kind of effort, this kind of engagement,” he says. “It’s the same. And I think that’s even more—to us—more profound than anything else.”

What were the goals or measurable parameters of implementing CFK in place of regular PE?? I can totally see the benefits of CF in schools - just wondering how you "sold" it to the community. Especially in terms of how you are going to measure results
