Mission Statement and Philosophy
The goal of the Mind Body Program (MBP) is to empower CSUS students with the knowledge that enables them to make healthy informed choices for lifelong fitness and wellness. The realization of the program includes a technology-based integration of athletics, physical education, health, science, and interdisciplinary projects. In addition to the activity portion (athletics, dance, or activity class) of our program, our curriculum includes a Fitness Lab rotation that enhances student learning by following a progression from ninth through eleventh grade; these labs build upon the fundamental components of fitness and ultimately advance to student development of Individual Fitness Plans.
We believe in the fundamental relationship between a healthy mind and body, and that life long fitness is equally as important as exemplary academics.
