Mission: Fit Possible

Advent-132 2.jpg


FOOD: Nutritional fitness

MOVE: Physical fitness

MOOD: Emotional fitness

RECHARGE: Restorative fitness

The connection between these four elements is the strength of the fit platform. As children experience the connectivity of each element to the others, they begin to realize how one weak area affects the others, just like dominoes. This knowledge encourages and reinforces healthy decision-making.

This optional program is suitable for children ages 4-10. For more information, click here.

The fit approach is comprehensive and teaches children to uncover the clues of healthy living. By pulling all aspects of life together in a whole-health fitness approach, children can achieve a fit, healthy life. The fit platform features these elements:
