Healthy Body

Athlos believes that students who lead active and healthy lives are better equipped to learn in the classroom. The same is true in the workplace — one of the best ways to stay sharp in the office is by taking a few quick, intentional movement breaks during the day.

Here’s what our team members enjoy about working at Athlos Academies…

It’s rare to find companies that break up their workday with yoga, dancing, mindfulness activities, or freestyle basketball. Movement breaks allow us to model what we teach in our schools and contribute to our unique Athlos culture.
