So, I was approached by the director about possibly doing a 6 week fitness class for high school students. I know nothing about hs students... It would probably be twice a week, during the day.

Yeah, it would be 15-18 so that sounds encouraging. The director said the one thing you need to do is keep them moving and changing what they're doing.

I would REALLY emphasize healthy lifestyle vs. diets and extreme exercise. Focus on teaching proper form & intensity and talk about making exercise a lifetime habit.

Definitely. This isn't a class on lifestyle or anything, just a sports conditioning type thing.
