PowerUp P.E. is an initiative that creates and disseminates evidence-based training materials and resources for Physical Education (PE) teachers to help students become more physically active during P.E. PowerUp P.E. offers training videos demonstrating fun and interactive ways in which elementary school PE teachers can increase their students’ physical activity levels and a downloadable toolkit for PE teachers that complements these videos. Also available are two webinars for professional development purposes, featuring instructions for incorporating these materials into P.E. curricula. The goal is to increase children’s physical activity levels in an effort to prevent and/or reduce the prevalence of obesity and other chronic diseases and to improve the overall physical and mental health of children. Funding for PowerUp P.E. was provided by Active Living Research/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
