A Better Way to Warm-Up

Movement preparation is preparation for the present and future. Typically, a warm-up only engages muscles and prepares your body for activity. But you can do more when preparing for movement…

Physical literacy movement preparation is movement that focuses on incorporating and improving fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills into activity. It prepares the body for movement and enhances the way you move for short-term and long-term benefits. Movement Preparation improves the way you move, which reduces the risk of injury during physical activity. It also teaches skills that will benefit participation in unfamiliar activities.

Movement preparation that is geared toward physical literacy – focusing on the techniques that improve and incorporate fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills – can also foster a more physically active and healthy lifestyle.


  • Children become better movers and better athletes
  • Children strengthen their bodies through increased participation in physical activity
  • Children prepare their muscles for immediate activity and develop the skills and confidence to safely participate in unfamiliar activities
  • Children acquire the skills, confidence, and motivation to overcome challenges.

…because they’re developing physical literacy.
