Method 1: Teachers Manually Enter Data

Fitness Finders created a fun, informative recording/instruction sheet for students and parents to use. The Equivalency Chart equates 28 kid-centered activities to one mile. Students record their exercise on the Equivalency Chart, then return if via email to the teacher.  The teacher then simply goes to the class sheet and enters the miles for the student. See how to do that here. The Equivalency Chart with instructions can be found at

Method 2: Parent/Student Scanning From Home

Step 3: Add courses 

To avoid creating courses for each individual, simply setup generic courses that the students can choose from – such as 1 lap per mile, 2 laps per mile, etc., all the way up to 10 laps per mile. You can also add equivalency courses for desired time frames to go along with our Equivalency Chart – such as 20 minutes = 1 mile. Parents/students simply select the appropriate course for that session.
