Space Sportilization is a series of fitness activities that students can do on Earth and then predict what similar moves would look like in free fall on the ISS.

Richard Garriott, the next civilian to fly in space, will be teaming up with Ken Harvey, former NFL player and four-time pro bowler, to create this activity that tries to involve students in space while getting them fit on Earth.
Harvey stated, "With this activity, that we call, Space Sportilization, we hope to combine sports and space together to help students learn what science principles are at work when we play sports. Kids will help me work on a set of football drills that we will give to Richard Garriott to practice as he travels among the stars."
