Healthy Moves is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization bringing movement, fitness and fun to elementary students through a six-week trainer-in-residence program. Due to school budget cuts, many physical education programs have been eliminated, leaving classroom teachers to teach PE classes, many times without specialized training. Healthy Moves trainers work with students and their teacher demonstrating fitness activities and providing a model the teacher can use for future PE classes. This approach reduces the teacher planning time for physical education and gives students fitness activities they enjoy. The students develop physical skills required in state teaching standards. Healthy Moves provides teachers with a fitness format that can be used by all teachers of grades two through five.

Schools also provide opportunities for students to learn about and practice healthy eating and physical activity. Healthy Moves offers benefits to schools and students in promoting child physical activity in the following ways:
