rFit is a fitness curriculum that connects multiple disciplines, intersecting them at the node of lifelong health and fitness success.

Schools often view fitness and physical education as stand-alone from health class, biology, chemistry, history and virtually all other classes. The Director of Athletics at Riverdale Country School decided that it was time to change fitness from its current perception to one of lifelong fitness and health. By combining an interdisciplinary curriculum with wearable technology, he has developed a program that will allow students to walk across a stage with not only a High School Diploma, but also a physical well-being diploma that represents their understanding of the importance of lifelong fitness and health.
