Who We Are

Forward In Fitness

Forward In Fitness is a 501(c)(3) Non Profit Organization Founded in 2017 by Karina Villa. In order to reduce the rates of diabetes and childhood obesity, we believe it all starts by looking in our own backyards. Our local, community-driven efforts to make health and wellness accessible is a necessary cause we believe will help communities thrive and grow. We believe engaging city and community leaders to our fitness workshops in schools will enhance and benefit our efforts by emphasizing community engagement.

Our Mission

Our Mission for Forward In Fitness is to promote Health and Wellness resources in communities that may not have access to fitness education and health-related activities and support. We believe it is our mission to make healthy living and physical fitness as accessible as possible for all communities, as health and wellness is an essential part of living. A person's zip-code, financial status, or living situation should not dictate whether they can have access to health and wellness resources - we believe everyone should have access and not be disadvantaged on their efforts to live a healthy lifestyle.

According to the World Health Organization, it is Recommended children get At Least 60 Minutes of Physical Activity Everyday
