FitSpirit’s flagship activity, the FitClub trains thousands of teenage girls every year to adopt healthy lifestyle habits.
Divided into three phases (motivation – training – surpassing their limits), the adventure focuses on the value of physical activity and the fun of taking part in it with other girls:
1 > MOTIVATION
The FitClub starts with a visit from an athlete-speaker who, through telling her inspiring story, motivates the girls to take part in the challenge.
2 > TRAINING
The athlete-speaker’s presentation is followed by 8 weeks of girls-only training for the Run. During this period, FitSpirit ambassadors visit the participants and guide them as they learn more about active lifestyles, healthy eating and development of their self-esteem. The young women also discover new activities through Zumba/dance workshops given by professionals.
3 > SURPASSING THEIR LIMITS
A major 5K or 10K Run closes out the FitClub. The surprises and program activities allowed the girls to experience moments that are rich in memories.
