Fuel Up to Play 60 F.I.T.T. Club

We are excited to offer all 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students the opportunity to improve their fitness while raising awareness in making healthier lifestyle choices in both nutrition and exercise. The premise of the FITT Club will be governed by the FITT Principle: 

F = Frequency or how often you should exercise 

I = Intensity or your Target Heart Rate Zone 

T = Time or how long you should maintain the intensity 

T = Type or choosing a variety of fitness activities that you enjoy 

Fitness activities that include flexibility, jump rope, stretch bands, squats, abdominals, bicep curls, push-ups, shoulder raises, hula hooping, lunges, etc. Cost: FREE!! 

NOTE: the main goal and focus of the FITT Club is to provide a fitness-based circuit designed to improve your child’s fitness level. The FITT Club will be treated as an extracurricular club and all 2nd - 5th Grade students are welcome, but poor behavior or lack of participation will always result in dismissal from this club.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Encouraging every 2nd through 3rd grade students to come every Monday before school from 7:15-7:45 am and every 4th through 5th grade students to come every Wednesday morning from 7:15-7:45 am.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We are currently in year 3 of the F.I.T.T. Club and average 100 students before school every Monday and Wednesday morning using the equipment purchased with the grant.
