Obesity has doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past generation. At Tupelo, we believe that the healthy habits that can change the course of this problem must begin to be addressed between the ages of 7-13. The lessons learned at a young age can make a powerful positive impact on health, self confidence, and mental awareness for a lifetime to come.

After School Programs (ASA)
We offer an 8 week after school program where kids can interact with mymo, tracker their steps, and learn about the importance of being active everyday.
Classroom Fit Kit
Our classroom program gives teachers an easy to use educational kit that includes fitness trackers, portal access, and classroom leaderboards, along with all the tools needed to give students an interactive, hands on, health & technology learning experience.
How does it work?
Each student is equipped with a mymo fitness tracker that they simply wear on their body each day. The device collects their steps and wirelessly transmits their activity data to a small tablet in the room, displaying the results on a classroom leader board via the world wide web.
Not only does this technology allow students to compete with other classrooms around the world, but it becomes a great discussion tool for understanding how being fit and active impacts our bodied on a daily basis and how different lifestyles and climates around the world affect what health and exercise looks like.
Additionally, it is a unique tool for schools to identify and assist those students who are not getting the necessary levels of daily activity.
