No Excuse Kid is a free elementary school program taught by parent volunteers and community professionals targeting children ages 5-12 yrs old. The children are taken through an 8-10 week program where they meet 1-3 times a week and are taught good nutrition, healthy choices and physical activity. Our goal is to empower families in creating no-excuse-ways to be healthy and incorporate exercise and good nutrition daily. If you are interested in starting a NEK program at your school, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our goal is to instill a collaborative effort between students, teachers and parents to engage in fitness activities to improve overall health and physical fitness standards. Our objective is to provide students an opportunity to increase their state’s physical fitness tests in strength, endurance and flexibility through before school programs, nutritional workshops and parental participation. This program is usually funded by federal grants foundations and is currently active only in the Maryland region by our NEK manager, Kate Cole.
No Excuse Moms (NEM) is an international movement with over 300 locations in 25 countries.
The No Excuse Mom Group is a group of moms focused on growing healthily, connecting our community, leading our youth and supporting each other. We have free workout locations in local parks where we engage in physical activity with our children. We believe that health starts at home and that in order to raise a healthy child, you must be a healthy parent. Please visit our official site at www.noexcusemom.com
C.O.R.E. Clubs: C.O.R.E. stands for “Coalition of REAL ENERGY”. This is a play off of the Law of Thermodynamics, in which the key to weight loss is calories in and calories out. Real Energy is not found in a magic pill or cup of coffee, real energy is inside all of us and is created through action. Our “Core” is also the foundation of our body’s strength. This is the arena where all strength derives from. Our C.O.R.E. club is a high school fitness club, in which we help foster an unintimidating, support environment for students of all athletic levels. We help program events, assist in grant-making/fundraising, and support students who need mentorships and fitness guidance.
Family Transformation Program: FWB understands that in order to make long-term change, it’s vital to target the home environment. In this program, families commit to a 60-day, educational and exercise intensive boot camp. This has been FWB’s most successful program so far, with many working out together and making fitness strides as a family. This program usually begins in early January, when momentum to achieve fitness goals are high. A fitness instructor meets with the group once a week and an assistant works with their diet and exercise planning throughout the week.
Donated Sports Equipment: FWB donates sports equipment and fitness/nutrition books to community sports/fitness programs where the youth lack resources and the financial support base to gain access to athletic supplies.
