Cindi Juncal is the President and Founder of TNPF and received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of San Diego with an emphasis in Special Education. A life-long child advocate, she was the fundraising chairperson for North San Diego County Special Olympics and a founding board member for the Vista del Mar Educational Foundation in San Clemente, CA. Prior to raising a family, she was Chief Operations Officer of a retail corporation and then Merchandising Manager of a large, active clothing brand.

As a fitness enthusiast, she held numerous championship titles in the martial arts and has trained individuals of all ages and abilities, from aspiring athletes to NFL and PGA Tour professionals. Most recently she was a fitness coach and kickboxing instructor at So Cal Boot Camp but has since devoted all of her spare time promoting awareness on childhood obesity, type 2 diabetes and the importance of healthy lifestyle choices via sound nutrition, exercise and substance abuse prevention. Through the foundation’s annual HIGH 5IVE 4FITNESS event, she helps unite the exercise community into an integrated “fitfam”, where local gyms participate and compete against each other, but with the common cause of raising the funds that keep the TNPF programs free to the communities of south Orange County and beyond.

She currently serves the City of San Clemente on the Human Affairs Committee and her favorite activities include pretty much anything outdoors, especially if it’s on the beach or tennis courts! She and her husband, Don, have two grown children who grew up in CUSD and currently live and attend college in the Pacific Northwest. The only remaining child at home is a furry, four-legged family member named Yuki.

  • The best part about the Battle of the Gyms at our HIGH 5IVE 4FITNESS event is how all these amazing fitness professionals come together on one field to support a common cause: raising healthy kids for a healthy world! I love watching the athletes chat, cheer, laugh, tease, taunt and ultimately toast each other before, during and after the day's activities. (The after party is usually at Nomads but based on this year's attendance, we're gonna need a bigger venue!) _____________________________________________ 24 Hr.

_____________________________________________

THE SCHOOL GARDEN PROJECT at Las Palmas Elementary began about six years ago and today encompasses not only a large garden area of plants and vegetables, but also a greenhouse, compost center and an outdoor amphitheater which serves as an open air classroom. Students are treated to workshops that blend physical activity and cooperation with science and nutrition.

_____________________________________________

Led by 4th/5th combo teacher Paola Paz Soldan and supported in full by Principal Kristen Nelson, teachers are given a space to sow seeds and tend their plants. With the help of “garden parents’, students raise and then harvest the fruits of their labors and even get to occasionally sample unique dishes prepared by the district which include a special ingredient grown from their garden. Examples have included cauliflower and kale salads, served during their lunch time along with recipes cards that they can take home in order to share their healthy eating with their families!

_____________________________________________

We proudly recognize Paola Paz Soldan and the educators at Las Palmas Elementary for the work they have done and continue to do through their Garden Project, which connects their student body of over 900 students to the earth, the environment and the eco-systems we all share on this big blue marble. It warms our hearts to see schools like Las Palmas literally getting their hands dirty - and encouraging our children to do the same!! _____________________________________________ *The Mike Katke Inspiration Award is given in recognition of the individual, school, business or organization which exemplifies our mission to create a healthy world full of healthy kids.

This category gave members of the participating BOTG clubs the opportunity to experience the same thrill of competition that their top fitness instructors, trainers and coaches get in the Elite Battle. _____________________________________________ Conquering our course by pushing themselves to their limits— and beyond— proved to be a challenge that everyone embraced with a vengeance.

  • Good coaches are out there. GREAT coaches, however, are hard to find. If your coach builds you up, rather than knocking you down - not by false praise but by taking the time to get to know you as a person, so they can tailor their approach to your tendencies; If your coach checks their own ego at the door and doesn't tie up their self-worth in your results; If your coach inspires you to do more than you think you can, entertaining possibilities that stretch the limits of your beliefs, then chances are good you have found a GREAT teacher. _____________________________________________ Examples of these leaders were in abundance at our HIGH 5IVE 4FITNESS event. It was inspiring to watch them in action. A huge thank you to ALL the gyms who particpated, as well as the teachers and schools. You guys are what makes everything we do possible and we couldn't be more grateful... 💚 #HIGH5IVE4FITNESS #BattleoftheGyms #inspire #motivate #educate #elevate @snowsnow13 _______________________________________________...
