Healthy Choice? Fitness Programs for Kids


TUESDAY, 24 JULY 2021


Kid Fitness, Incorporated and The United Way of Chattanooga recently announced its partnership in developing further the health and fitness of pre-school to grade school students by providing consultations in the “Fun Fitness Break,” the grade school teachers’ kits. Furthermore, the said partnership aims to join in the creation and expansion of a community plan to address children’s health.

“The Fun Fitness Break” is a 7-minute exercise program developed by some of the nation’s leading childhood health and fitness experts and is being utilized by over 250,000 children in New York City public schools.

"We all know it will take many strategies to address childhood obesity. One of those strategies is providing teachers with the tools that may be used in the classroom that not only facilitates learning concepts, but also address movement and nutrition,” said Linda McReynolds, senior vice president of United Way of Greater Chattanooga. “It will take the entire community working together to make the kind of impact we are working toward to ensure our children a healthy lifestyle."

As for Paul Neville, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Kid Fitness, Inc., he said that the goal of the Kid Fitness Program is to yield positive behavioral change among children by providing a fun, interactive, and entertaining format that will help kids make their own healthy choices on physical activity and nutrition.

Kid Fitness programs are supported by the National Association of Sports and Physical Education ("NASPE"). The Kid Fitness show is produced in New York and distributed to PBS stations nationally by American Public Television.
