The FitNation program is in high-demand for Indigenous communities, designed for community champions looking to enhance their peoples’ well-being with a fun and safe physical activity program designed for Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere.
If you have a passion for keeping your community moving, you are eligible to apply for FitNation leader training!
FitNation training equips leaders with skills and resources which empower them to design and deliver a physical activity program, for any age group, and any fitness level. Use FitNation to Frankenstein kick around your classroom, get the most out of your modified chair workouts, or get your co-workers away from their desks for active breaks.
FitNation leader training includes expert teachings on over 70 FitNation movements, workshops in physical literacy, the holistic model, nutrition, and program development strategies. Trained leaders return home confident in delivering a required 8-week FitNation program in their community. Those selected to attend will have all travel costs and expenses covered by I·SPARC.
Opportunities associated with becoming a FitNation leader:
- $500 in grant support to run a required FitNation program;
- Opportunities to lead FitNation sessions at conferences, health fairs and other special events; and
- Continued training and education opportunities (i.e. BCRPA continuing education credits, fitness and health related webinars, mentorship opportunities, FitNation 2.0).
To date there are 129 trained leaders across BC, delivering FitNation programs in community, at conferences, and many other special events.
