Imagine a country where kids grow up valuing fitness and nutrition, where youth from disadvantaged backgrounds are given the opportunity to improve their health, fitness, and personal development.
Teens from tough neighborhoods and difficult family lives choose to be involved in fitness, sports, and other positive outlets instead of drugs, gangs, and violence. After school, they go to their local gym (CFJ) where they sweat alongside other members of their local community – firefighters, lawyers, doctors, businessmen, soccer moms, etc.
CrossFit offers a positive framework and community to help at-risk youth grow into stronger and healthier individuals- both physically and mentally. Working out and eating well become second nature, and they learn life lessons in a supportive environment – discovering what they’re capable of, pushing themselves to work hard and strive for something greater.
CFJ wants to be a part of the solution! That is why we are partnering with Steve’s Club to create a local club designed to reach kids in Mesa County. CFJ Members, we need your help!! We need a name in order to establish a non-profit. Bring your creativity and help us find a catchy, inclusive name that will help us reach out to children. Post your ideas here or let your coach know.
