In an effort to address the desperate need for the United States to change their attitude regarding the importance of education and physical activity for children, Playworks has created a health and fitness program called FitKid. FitKid introduces students to material that helps them better understand the physical body and how it works. The overall goal of FitKid is to introduce projects and encourage discussion to create motivation and interest about the level of fitness for each child. Students are taught how to set short-term goals to build a lifetime of health and happiness. Each goal offers students a fun variation of exercises, games, and activities.
