How are you getting creative to overcome obstacles?

Fitting In Exercise, Between Math and English, an article published by The New York Times, shares how physical educators in New York have had to get creative in order to beat budget cuts and time limitations, to provide physical activity to their students. Unfortunately, this issue isn't limited to New York - it's happening all over the country. Physical education professionals have had to become some of the most innovative and out-of-the-box thinkers of all professions.

The article sites running clubs and storage closets turned fitness rooms as examples of how physical educators are getting creative. We know you all have done these things, plus more.

We want to hear from you. What challenges are you facing in your school? What have you done to help overcome obstacles? How many minutes/days of PE do your students receive weekly?
