At Fitspirit our goal is to help teenage girls discover the fun of being active and healthy with friends.
We do it by creating programs and events where girls aged 12 to 17 are introduced to physical activity and in turn discover the positive effects for long term health and well being. Based on their reality and tastes, our programming takes into account their experiences and concerns, what motivates them, and above all, the fact that they love to hang out with their friends. This approach, built around trying something new, fun and friendship is without a doubt the secret to our success.
In fact, since its founding in 2007, FitSpirit has created awareness among 110,000 teenage girls in Ontario and Quebec. Our flagship event, the FitClub, was found in more than 100 high schools and elementary schools in both provinces and had more than 12,500 participants for the 2016 edition.
Surrounded by school volunteers and FitSpirit ambassadors (athlete-speaker, kinesiologist, nutritionist, and mentor), the participants live a rewarding experience in a relaxed atmosphere that’s open to everyone. No competition, no pressure to perform: the only objective of FitSpirit is for girls to have fun together while trying new physical activities.
Since our goal is to always reach a greater number of girls, and continue to offer new opportunities to be active, we created FunFit in 2016. It’s a brand new program that aims to support various types of organizations in creating their own original sports activities for the fall months that will click with girls. FitSpirit support them by providing communication tools and visibility to boost their activities and by giving them access to our weekly draws to win various prizes.
