The first day of summer will be here in no time, which means vacation season, an increase in outdoor and water activities, and warm weather. 

June 1st - June 7th is National CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) Awareness Week. 

Whether you'll be spending summer on the beach, at your local community pool, exploring the great outdoors, or just relaxing, be prepared for summer safety by learning CPR.

Did you know? Cardiac arrest, which can be triggered by a heart attack, drowning or other underlying conditions, is when the heart suddenly stops beating. CPR can nearly double to triple a person's chance of survival. Nearly 70% of cardiac arrests happen inside the home, which means if you ever have to perform CPR on someone, chances are it will be someone you know.

Are you and your students trained in CPR? The American Heart Association has great resources on CPR, including Hands-Only CPR, which you can learn online in a snap. Don't be caught off guard this summer - be prepared to be a lifesaver.

In April, we introduced you to circuit training strategies designed to improve FitnessGram® scores. The circuit training session should alternate one minute of cardio exercise with 1 minute of strength exercise. As mentioned previously, the strength training routine should target all major muscle groups. However, creating fun and innovative ways to include cardio can be a challenge. Incorporate fit tip cardio strategies to make your next circuit training workout a fun activity for kids of all ages.
