OUR FITNESS CHALLENGE FOR SCHOOLS

The goal of The Noble Path Foundation’s Fitness Challenge for Middle Schools is to educate San Clemente youth about the benefits of a sound nutrition and exercise program.

Our weekly mini-fitness camps held during their PE periods will not only get them moving, but moving properly – as key elements such as posture, balance, and coordination are all vital factors in injury prevention. The challenge kicks off with a day of assemblies focusing on nutrition and we encourage the entire family to get involved by providing them with healthy eating strategies for the duration of the challenge.

Nutrition is a crucial component in the program, with the aim being to educate the students on how different types of food affect their bodies in different ways and to debunk the diet myth that “a calorie is a calorie.” Results are monitored both during and at the conclusion of the challenge, but the confidence gained by feeling healthy and fit is immeasurable and will hopefully last a lifetime for these young participants.

The fitness component of the 9-week challenge is designed to have seven basic elements, focusing on the following measurable areas of athletic performance: First-step Quickness, Acceleration, Maximum Velocity, Multi-directional Movement, Agility and Plyometrics, Injury Prevention in Movement, and Flexibility. The purpose for advancing these areas of athletic performance is to help educate the students about their body in relation to movement. Helping kids find the correlation between movement and physics creates an atmosphere of cognitive learning paired with physical activity, which is a crucial element emphasized throughout the nine weeks.

During each subsequent weekly fitness camp, trainers working in conjunction with the PE teachers will lead various drills and exercise activities aimed at improving specific targets such as agility, speed, strength, endurance, and flexibility as the students compete to see which period makes the most overall improvement. Every two weeks, a nutrition challenge is offered as extra credit to support the major points discussed in the nutrition discussions. The challenge concludes after final results are tallied and averaged. The winning period with the most overall improvement on average, will be treated to a catered, healthy lunch.

  • Instead of adding a list of things to do to improve your life, try eliminating the acts, thoughts, behaviors and people who diminish it. You just might find less is more. 😉❤️🙏🏼 #brainfood #happymindday #wellness #gratitude

  • It is with profound sorrow that we mourn the loss of our teammate Samantha Narey. She leaves behind a legion of friends and family who will carry her memory and exuberant spirit into eternity and our hearts flow out with love to her husband Jake and the two boys who were her everything, Oliver and Charlie. GOODBYES hurt the most when the story is not finished and this abrupt ending to such a beautiful tale leaves us bewildered and heartbroken. To those she touched with her gracious heart and caring soul, we are blessed in knowing we have become better humans for having her in our lives. There is solace in knowing that in each good deed we do going forward, we share a piece of her love and compassion and in that regard, she lives amongst us still. Rest In Peace, Sam. Our loss is heaven’s #gainz. We know you are shining - and lifting - in ethereal light. Love forever and ever... ❤️ @samjam2304
