Youth In Motion
The Youth in Motion Organization exists to fight back against this epidemic and to directly impact kid’s lives through health, fitness and wellness.This program not only gets kids active, YIM teaches them leadership skills, confidence, self worth, goal setting and instills a desire to achieve.
To create and encourage health and wellness responsibility in all youth allowing them to become healthy, happy and active adults in body, mind and spirit.
In 2010 CrossFit Central CoFounders created Youth in Motion in order to give back to the community and impact children’s lives. The initial implementation was completed in the spring of 2011. A free ten week exercise and nutrition education program was provided for fourteen fifth grade students. The 10 weeks consisted of 2 one hour fitness and nutrition session and introduction to homework time. The impact of the 20 sessions was measured with entrance and exit interviews and benchmark workouts.
To date we have raised over $100,000 for this program. Check out blog posts, videos, pictures and how you can get involved →
