The "Games-as-Aerobics" Approach to Physical Activity features an approach to exercise that stresses fun, pleasure, and repeated success. Calisthenic and endurance activities are camouflaged as games, relays, or stunts that incorporate ball passing and other movement skills for variety. Game rules are often modified to minimize skill and competition and maximize participant enjoyment. As a result, smiles and laughter often replace the grunting and groaning that are associated with some traditional calisthenic-exercise programs.

Among the topics covered:
  • Individual stationary activities
  • Partner stationary activities
  • Individual continuous-movement activities
  • Partner continuous-movement activities
  • Group activities
  • Recreational games
  • Relays
