VIDEO: California Family Fitness teams up with Rancho Cordova Elementary

 
Fourth and fifth-graders at Rancho Cordova Elementary School recently benefitted from a unique partnership between California Family Fitness and the Folsom Cordova Unified School District, in which students received personal training on active living and healthy habits.
 
The program was born out of CFF's commitment to building a healthier community and is designed to mirror CFF's group training program, "Body Fit," which offers a dynamic fusion of cardio and strength training in a small group format. CFF's certified personal trainers coached students weekly training sessions throughout the fall, culminating in an awards ceremony earlier in November.
 
The program also incorporated "homework" designed to engage the entire family in building and sustaining healthy lifestyle habits. Outside-of-school activities included taking a family trip to a local farmer's market, a walk around the neighborhood and planting a vegetable in their garden. Awards categories for participating students included greatest improvement, most inspirational and many others.
 
The Body Fit Kids program is one of several initiatives kicking off this fall in collaboration with Folsom Cordova. Select CFF management are participating in Folsom Cordova Unified School District's six-weekCommunity Readers Programthat teams up volunteers in the community to meet one-on-one twice weekly with a student struggling to read at grade level. The company also held a book drive, donating hundreds of books to students in need.
