Forward In Fitness is a program in partnership with city and state leaders that helps combat childhood obesity through fitness. Bexar County is currently experiencing higher than average childhood obesity rates, a problem that city and state officials were immediately wanting to tackle. This program will bring a different city or state leader to participating schools bi-weekly, and leaders will briefly talk to children about how fitness has impacted their lives. Leaders will then join the students’ in a workout developed by the school’s coaching staff, sending a strong message to the children, that they are not alone on this journey towards health. This program will certainly be an impactful one, and an experience these children will never forget!
Forward In Fitness will begin its important work starting with the Southside Independent School District, South San Antonio Independent School District as well as East Central Independent School District, and add additional districts as the program evolves. We are grateful to our city and state leaders for their collaboration and effort, together we will move San Antonio Forward In Fitness.
