How fit Works

Being fit is more than just eating right and exercising. It’s understanding what influences our choices. Our program is grounded on four pillars essential to building awareness of healthy lifestyle choices, guiding decision making, and improving self-management skills.

Recharge

Your energy level influences the choices you make. RECHARGE by finding healthy screen-free ways to relax and by getting the restorative sleep your body needs.

Program Outcomes:

Recognize that energy influences behavior.


Get an appropriate amount of sleep and rest.


Increase healthy relaxation daily.

Mood

Emotions influence behaviors of not just yourself but others too. Feelings and emotions put you in a MOOD, and your MOOD influences your choices.

Food

FOOD is fuel for your body and brain. Make healthy food and beverage choices by reducing sugar consumption, and increasing fruit and vegetable consumption.

Who Can Use fit?

Anyone! It doesn’t matter if you’re a teacher, a coach, a parent, or a community member trying to make a difference. These “resources” were designed for YOU.
