Fitness University 2010
Fitness University recently wrapped up it's 2010 schedule of clinics with Finals Day on August 1st and I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge what a phenomenally great program it is! Fitness University is a FREE running fitness program for children ages 3 to 14. It was originally developed in 1989 by the Gate City Striders, as a way to help promote the importance of fitness, fun and good health. Through June and into July, running clinics are held in Nashua and surrounding towns. Kids are instructed on how to warm-up, stretch, run and have fun while doing it. They learn about healthy eating habits and staying safe. Then, the fun culminates on Finals Day with games, prizes, and plenty of laughter for all.
Southern New Hampshire Medical Center for making this great event happen!
