About Glitch Fitness
In today's digital age, kids are growing up in environments where they are predisposed to developing unhealthy preferences. In the course of a single day, a child might find chips and candy bars in the snack machine at school, play video games and apps that were designed to be addictive to their still-developing brains, see a constant barrage of marketing for delicious foods devoid of nutritional value, and feel pressure to have their own smartphone or tablet before they reach their teenage years. Their lives are influenced by these pressures. Sugary drinks, easy fast-food, and little or no physical activity have become the social norms for most kids, while childhood obesity and diabetes are at an all-time, record high. Issues like low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety among youth are growing at an alarming rate, yet time spent each day on video gaming and other screen time continues to rise.
Glitch Fitness was founded to help fill this gap. Drawing parallels between an overloaded circuit producing an unforeseen spike in energy and combining the principles of movement, fuel, and environment (mindset) to achieve high-reaching goals, Glitch Fitness shows kids theres a better way. With parents and coaches working in partnership, youth are invited to step away from screens, focus on whats inside, and nurture that spark for a healthy lifestyle - giving them a fighting chance to make better choices and follow a different path.
With coaches, kids, and parents working together, we can reverse sedentary trends, give kids the skills they need to be happy, healthy adults, and build a community of caring, socially responsible individuals committed to confidence, inclusion, teamwork, and health.
