Our youth program (ages 6-17) is an hour long class designed to be fun, with the main focus to KEEP MOVING. We are using athletic/functional movements to develop fitness habits. Research shows that nearly 60 percent of overweight children age 5 to 17 had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease and 25 percent had two or more. And obese kids have an 80 percent chance of staying obese their entire lives. (www.heart.org). Program includes stretching, agility drills, and general conditioning exercises. We also emphasize nutrition as well as teamwork and Fight For Hearts' core values (Healthy Living, Work Ethic, Commitment, Respect, and Responsibility).
