Special Olympics Kansas fit 5 program

Fit 5 is a program designed and lead by coaches/coordinators to keep track of their athlete’s exercise, nutrition, and hydration. Staying fit is more than participating in sports. It’s a lifestyle. The program consists of tracking and recording your athlete’s exercise 5 days per week, eating 5 fruits/vegetables per day, and drinking 5 bottles of water per day. Coaches will be given a toolkit that will provide them with information and resources on how to achieve the Fit 5 goals of their athletes. These tools include Fitness Cards for exercise, a week-by-week fitness guide, and tracking charts for their athletes. Fitness can start at home and transcend onto the playing field. Carrying out Fit 5 as a coach is easy and helps your athletes prioritize health and wellness. Implementing Fit 5 can mean your team’s fitness is on the right track.
