Helping Fitness MovE Forward
"Our Mission Is To Bring Fitness Spaces, and Education To Those That Need it Most"
We are passionate about one simple goal: Move Fitness Forward. As budget cuts force school districts, first responders and community organizations to shift priorities, fitness and wellness are dramatically overlooked. The Impact Fitness Foundation is a cost-effective, 501 c3 nonprofit resource that provides tools to assist in organizational changes that make an ongoing IMPACT.
WHAT WE DO
IFF builds/renovates unused or unsafe areas into Motivational Fitness, Movement, and or Mindfulness spaces that promote healthy habits, helping those using the space MOVING FORWARD.
Our Team of certified and highly educated Fitness and Nutrition Coaches lead clinics to help build, develop and grow a culture that can continue functioning for years after each project is completed.
Here at IFF we want to continue to be a resource for those leading the way in these spaces after each project is complete. We accomplish this by providing a continuing education community for these leaders to be a part of and grow.
