Comprehensive Physical Fitness Programs

The Challenge

Lack of access to physical activity during early childhood is a critical problem that leads to long-term negative health consequences, such as obesity and related diseases, and can negatively affect academic performance in school among other things. By providing age appropriate, fun, after-school physical activity programs – at no cost to schools or participating children – Fit Kids seeks to inspire an early love of physical activity that will serve as the foundation for a healthy, active life.

Our #1 Program Goal

Our number one goal is to MAKE FITNESS FUN! At Fit Kids, we believe structured, physical activity is an essential component of every child’s healthy development. We want to inspire kids to lead healthy, active lives and hope that through early exposure to physical activity at Fit Kids, our program will help children develop a love of fitness that translates into healthy choices as they grow.

In our Core Programs, Fit Kids provides trained, professional coaches to run our after-school program at our partner’s sites. Our coaches bring all of the necessary equipment for each class and teach our curriculum to groups of up to 25 TK-2nd grade students. Our Core Programs include 50 classes over each academic school year. Our unique combination of activities at each class helps kids build important fitness skills, such as strength, speed and agility, AND motor skills such as hand/foot-eye coordination, running, kicking and throwing. These are all important skills for kids to lead healthy active lives and have confidence in their physical abilities.

Our amazing coaches are the cornerstone of our Core Programs. Fit Kids has partnered with Positive Coaching Alliance to provide training to all Fit Kids staff. Using the power of positive reinforcement to pursue winning and the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports, Fit Kids hopes to raise the trajectory of these children’s lives and see them become healthy, successful, and compassionate teenagers and adults. Additionally, all Fit Kids coaches will go through a comprehensive training to become Double-Goal Coach® certified.
