Why I?

The “I” in I-MOVE can reflect the individual movement experience for health enhancement, enjoyment, and personal expression; portray how an individual can impact and motivate others by becoming a physical activity leader, coach, or dancer; or demonstrate the integration of information technologies that can motivate, monitor, and measure exercise and activity.
