2010 FIT Summer Camp Wrap Up!

7 Sep

My hope is the successes, skills and knowledge these kids obtained during the camp will last them a lifetime.

The 2010 camp was a great success! Our campers enjoyed a fulfilling fitness experience that left them with a great sense of accomplishment and Joy.  Each child set an individual weekly goal, such as a personal best for the 1 mile run, climbing the rope, or jumping higher, and I am happy to say almost every goal was met! The hard work and dedication that these young people showed was truly amazing.  Many of the attendees enjoyed the experience so much they signed up for multiple weeks of camp.  As a coach, watching these young kids work so hard was inspiring!  My hope is the successes, skills and knowledge these kids obtained during the camp will last them a lifetime.

I commend the parents for signing their children up for a camp that is focused around fitness. This is a great step in paving the way for the future health of their children. A child’s self perception of exercise is formed by their parents, as well as personal experiences and environments (Presidents council on physical fitness). If this view is tainted at a young age, our young people may shy away from exercise and digress into a sedentary lifestyle that will negatively affect them for a lifetime. Doctor Weiss stated
“Significant adults are primed to structure the environment and exhibit behaviors that
enhance children’s physical competency beliefs, self-esteem, and enjoyment of physical activity. In turn, these perceptions and emotions are the keys to solving the mystery of motivating kids in physical activity.” (Maureen R. Weiss, Ph.D.)

The youth programs at FIT strive to promote a healthy active lifestyle for all young people and will continue to offer year round programs for kids and teens. These goal based fitness programs will enable your child to be part of a positive group environment that will help them shape a healthy outlook for the future.  For more information and current camp schedules, please contact Frank Knapp frank@focusedtrainers.com
