Fit Kids mission is to provide structured physical activity, movement, and mindfulness programs to ensure all children are able to enjoy the physical and mental health benefits of exercise.
Why Fit Kids?
of U.S. children fail to get the recommended hour of daily physical activity.
of youth living in poverty are overweight or obese.
These trends are more pronounced among Black and Latino youth.
Fit Kids fixes a fitness opportunity gap by providing structured fitness programs for youth, primarily in underserved communities, at no cost to the host schools and community organizations or their participating families.
Fit Kids programs—which flex for in-person or distance learning—combine warm-ups, fitness moves, games, and yoga/mindfulness practice that make fitness fun for kids of all ages.
