What We Do

Our mission is to promote a healthy active lifestyle among children in underserved communities through high quality youth fitness programs and nutrition tips. By offering increased opportunities for physical activity among children, we hope to inspire an early love of sports and fitness that will serve as the foundation for a healthy way of life. Furthermore, through our science based curriculum and dedicated coaches, Community Fitness & Education provides the framework to help children build positive relationships, self-confidence, independence and the ability to deal with adversity.
