Fitness encompasses all areas of body health. It is a measure of the bodies ability to perform work, its resistance to diseases, and its effective physical response in emergencies. The HFS Fitness Quadrant focuses on exercise, sports, being active and physical performance.

Through articles and videos HFS offers a variety of fitness information and activities suitable for both children and adults. For example, our Tabata for Attention Disorders video, which can be seen here.
Sports and recreational activities can be used prescriptively to address symptoms of behavioral, mood and cognitive disorders as well as improving a child’s health and stamina. In addition a high level of fitness helps reduce reliance on psychotropic medications and improve social relations with peers and family.
