You don’t have to be great to start，but you have to start to be great

对于许多人和小孩来说，留在家里锻炼身体是一件很困难的事情，就让TWIS的体育部Robert Loftman 老师和Jorge Villamayor 老师给大家一点动力，助你足不出户也可以实现健康目标。
Getting healthy and staying fit can be a struggle for many people and children while staying at home, but with a little motivation from our PE Team, Mr. Robert Loftman and Mr. Jorge Villamayor at TWIS, we know that you can achieve your fitness and health goals even you cannot go outside.
As the outbreak of the Coronavirus continues to rattle the beloved country of China, we had to close all our health, fitness and sports facilities in our beautiful campus; however, that didn't stop us from continuing the teaching and learning process! We managed to mobilize our TWIS Virtual School where students still have the opportunity to learn and develop their skills in all the subjects that we offer as a school. With that said the PE Department had to get creative and master the art of offering the robust PE Curriculum virtually to all students through a video conference platform. With this platform, it is almost like the students are in the classroom learning about nutrition and fitness or sweating it out on the courts.
Furthermore, as PE Teachers we know that teaching can be done through many different means. We can deliver our classes through the Microsoft Teams by video conferencing with our students where they see us and their classmates performing the various exercises and drills that we would normally do at school. With this vicarious way of teaching and learning our students are able to enjoy every waking moment of classes. We have also used the virtual platform to motivate students by demonstrating and doing the exercises with them, encourage students by answering their questions and being there for them virtually, stimulate students by using creative exercises and routines to keep them active, fit & healthy and develop students' interest more in the subject area on a daily basis through our instructions.
Finally, with our passion for the subject area, our kids have seen that great thrust of commitment in what we do as PE Teachers here at TWIS and that is the main driving force behind the PE Department delivering on the promise of "While I breathe, I explore, I hope.".
