Let's face it ....there are just not enough hours in the day to complete everything that we need or want to get done. All NYC high school students are required to complete physical education credits for graduation. According to a major study of physical education programs conducted by Cornell University, based on information from 37,000 high school students’ responses to surveys from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most students do not believe gym class is effective. We feel that this is because students generally do not enjoy the available activities at their school and are unwilling to actively participate.

Athletic Buddy, the ULTIMATE balancing app, helps students in NYC high schools, grades 8 through 10, find the athletic activities they want to participate in in a customizable schedule that balances their athletic requirements with their academic schedule.

Athletic Buddy appeals to every student with a smartphone or internet access that find gym class awkward, useless, or just plain dumb.
