Currently, Fit4Kids is leading the following programs:
Wellness Integration - Fit4Kid’s Wellness Integration program empowers elementary school teachers to incorporate movement and health promotion messages into the classroom. Fit4Kids Wellness Integration Specialists, who are certified teachers, develop and teach lively lessons that integrate physical activity into any subject. Wellness Integration Specialists help teachers realize that more movement in the classroom stimulates the brain, increases focus and alertness, enhances mood, improves memory, and bolsters test performance of students. In addition to creating active classrooms, Wellness Integration Specialists work to infuse entire schools with a culture of physical activity and nutrition through running clubs, family fun and fitness nights, veggie taste tests, and more.
