Adventure to Fitness

Project Categories:

How do you get kids excited about good nutrition and help them maintain an active lifestyle? Take them on an Adventure to Fitness every week! 

The award-winning Adventure to Fitness ( is a 30-minute classroom activity for grades K-5. 

It combines physical fitness, healthy lifestyle information, engaging storylines — and lots of fun. More than 2 million kids view each episode. 

These preproduced, curriculum-aligned adventures get kids moving as they start the school day with a lasting burst of energy and motivation. 

The program’s also an all-in-one, teacher-friendly elective that meets a multitude of mandatory requirements that affect the school day and crowd the classroom.

Adventure to Fitness is available to elementary public and private classrooms, after-school programs and day care facilities nationwide. 

And it’s free.

IDEAS Goes on an Adventure to Fitness

We were the exclusive provider of turnkey creative, production and postproduction services for Adventure to Fitness seasons 1 and 2.

We handled these key tasks and more: 

  • Producing
  • Scripting
  • Shooting
  • Animation
  • Audio/editorial services
  • Duplication
  • Production management

Our instructional designers reviewed all content to ensure it aligned with state and national standards. Meanwhile, we created print guides for both parents and teachers.

We started the process with a StoryJam to determine possible episodes and elements to include in each adventure. 

From there, we pared down a list to specific episodes and wrote scripts. Once we’d locked scripts, we began production and animation blocking for appropriate shots. 

We shot both seasons 1 and 2 on the insert stage at the Orlando IDEAS studio. 

First, we filmed the on-camera talent (Mr. Marc) on green screen, then edited the video elements in Final Cut Pro. 

Next, we exported those video segments to our animation team using After Effects and Maya. The animation team used illustrations we created to composite the live footage in the animated environments. 

Once the video was complete, the show went to the IDEAS audio team. They tackled sound design, music composition and the final audio mix. 

From show concepts to delivery, IDEAS completed the entire process in Orlando.

Healthy Results

Adventure to Fitness is a groundbreaking initiative to introduce health and physical activity into children’s lives. 

Every episode challenges kids to a 30-minute workout while they learn about geography, science, social studies, language arts and health. 

Alongside teacher and parent guides, the exciting live action and animated video make the program ideal for teaching children health and wellness. 

We also designed the program to meet state and national standards in collaboration with teachers, parents and school officials. 

From a teacher’s perspective, one of the program’s main advantages is its ease of use — it’s effortless to introduce into any classroom. 

The Adventure to Fitness Network is available to schools nationwide for free. As a result, it gives students the opportunity to build lifelong active and healthy habits.
