FitSpirit is a Quebec-based charitable organization whose mission is to empower teenage girls to stay active for life by creating memorable moments for them and building a community of inspired and committed people around them.
Physical activity is a powerful tool that offers countless benefits in terms of psychological well-being, mental health, social skills, cognitive abilities, and school success.
Many girls, when they reach puberty, become disengaged from physical activity and sports. Several obstacles can demotivate them from getting active. A main one is the fact that many of the activities offered are poorly adapted to their needs and interests. As a result, when they graduate from high school, 9 out of 10 girls are not active enough to fully enjoy the benefits offered by physical activity and sports.*
FitSpirit wants to reverse this trend!
FitSpirit offers its unique set of services and expertise by collaborating with schools with girls 12 to 17 years old. School, as a place of learning, is the ideal place for girls, regardless of their skill level, to take part in safe physical activities that can be just as rewarding. Friendships and role models are at the heart of any FitSpirit activity—with a strong emphasis on fun!
