In the fitness program our students plan and implement a workout routine they have created based on the fundamentals learned from our fitness experts.
Food and Nutrition
Our Food and Nutrition Program supports our Health and Fitness Academics. The belief food and nutrition are the same is a misnomer; simply, nutrition is the study of nutrients in food and how it affects our body. With this understanding Baylake Academy has established a snack program that encompasses this philosophy. We provide our students with healthy snack options that will encourage healthy eating habits as well as healthy mind.
