West Central CSD started an after-school Fitness Club for K-6th graders in November thanks to efforts by Jake Geis, AmeriCorps Service Member for West Central.
Last year, West Central had an after-school Food Club organized by previous Service Member Katie Lay. This year, Jake decided to add a few new spins, twists and turns to the club by transforming it into a Fitness Club. Each month, Jake takes students on an active exploration of fitness, and the kids love every minute of it!
November’s theme was “Meet, Mingle and Move: Getting active with all of our new friends”.
December’s theme was “Walking in a Winter Wonderland: Exploring our landscape on a hike”.
Jake’s high energy lessons will continue on into the spring with indoor aerobics, yoga, jumping games and beyond! What an awesome way to promote Active Living, Jake!
