Kim Burnett, grade 5/6 teacher at Chapman School

"It gets your heart rate up and it gets you get ready for your day ahead"
Kyle, grade 6, Chapman School

"I think teachers should use 'Get Off the Couch' to teach kids to be active and not to just lie around. It also encourages adults to start to get active too"
Shaelee, grade 5, Chapman School

"I think that teachers should use it because it helps you to get motivated to get some exercise. Dancing too, or even with this could get you more exercised and just help you have fun!"
