We Believe that FUN FITNESS is the BEST FITNESS!
"We believe that kids are more likely to want to and continue to be fit if they are having fun and doing something they actually enjoy doing."
Every day of the school year, teachers, parents, Playground Supervisor, volunteers, CF Fitness Trainers and fun fitness stars bring safe, healthy and fun fitness activities to kids on the playground and comunitees. CF Fitness get to know majority every student at the school, forming special bonds through fun activities and providing children with sense of belonging and an opportunity to contribute. No child is ever left behind.
Stories from Lunch Play:
"This year myself along with my staff and student council have come up with ideas to make lunch more organized. We decided that CF Fitness intramural type activities everyday offered at lunch recess would be great way for students to stay active. Every day we change the activity and the students are having a blast. So Far we have done football, soccer, capture the flag, obstacle courses, ping pong, and a track and field games. I picked these activities because most students seem to be interested in getting involved. The goal for this play is to make sure students are staying active whenever possible and not just standing around. At our school the students were pretty active at recess to start with, but it is now more organized making it more safe. The students look forward to the daily activities and they love being part of a team or partnership. It is easy to see the excitement the kids feel when it is their turn to be part of the activity and they love learning about sports they have never tried. The students in our wellness committee helped to decide the activities we would use during lunch. They also help set up equipment and get things ready on a daily basis."

"At the beginning of the year, we thought about things we could do during the school day that would help the students be more active. We wanted them to get used to moving while outside of the classroom. We introduced CF Fitness to the whole school and they get the kids going. The students learn how to dance during some of these fun activities which I thought was a unique. I have seen the students and staff get excited about dancing as well when they hear the music. They look forward to it every week and they do an excellent job at their dance routines. My Fuel Up group of kids at my school gets divided up into different groups and leads the dances in front of the other students. All CF Fitness trainers dance right next to the kids as well. There is a lot of positive energy at my school site."

"To achieve the nutrition education we used information provided by CF Fitness from their lunch meal provider portion control breakdown sheet. Preferred meals provided pictures and nutrition information which helped implement our play and how many minutes a child should play to burn those calories. Students are more aware of good choices to make while gathering their lunch in the cafeteria. CF Fitness Trainers has reached out to students to join the website and promote healthy eating and exercise. Our principal and teachers have supported this effort by encouraging students eat healthy. I feel it is helpful to gather a team that will be supportive in the effort."

"For my students to see me actively involved and living up to what I was saying, was enough for many to get on board. When CF Fitness implemented a reward’s for students to demonstrate a safe healthy playground during activities it was a big plus. Students that are active in the program, are leading by example. They are active in school, eating properly, and talking to their classmates. Even though many students are still bringing in the junk food, more and more are eliminating it during school hours. The fun fitness stars has got their classes to be active and motivated at lunch. They have just begun working together to create that environment throughout the school. There community leaders, parents and staff members all on board with the program. 'Keep up the great work CF Fitness'."

"What a great way for kids to learn how to stay in shape and eat healthy! Santiago loves CF Fitness: he looks forward to it each week. When I pick him up every day, we review the activities together and he identifies ways how he can meet each goal given by the trainers. As a result, we have been walking more, eating a lot more greens, and planning lots of healthy food scavenger hunts. Thanks for a great program that really engages the kids and inspires them in so many positive ways. My daughter LOVES CF Fitness! The structured lunch program keeps kids entertained and active the whole time, with music, games, and fun obstacle activities. If you're looking to try a new activity everyday CF Fitness is the program for your Childs school, I highly recommend it!”
