"We ALL deserve the same opportunities as we strive for a Healthy Mind, Body and Spirit."
"The Reality is.. for some we need to level the playing field... THIS IS OUR WHY"
We are passionate about one simple goal: Moving Fitness Forward. As budget cuts force school districts, first responders and community organizations to shift priorities, fitness and wellness are dramatically overlooked. Our mission is to change this...
WHAT WE DO
The Impact Fitness Foundation is a national 501c3 nonprofit that provides customized fitness spaces, instruction and educational tools to communities that simply don’t have the resources to prioritize their health and fitness facilities. We are a cost-effective turn key solution that partners with funders and work directly with school and district leaders to provide the tools they need to make ongoing change, whether the budget is $5,000 or $5 million. As you develop your social impact strategies, we would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about providing fitness and wellness tools to under-resourced schools.
IFF designs and renovates unused or unsafe areas into Motivational Fitness, Movement, and or Mindfulness spaces that promote healthy habits. This work can be done with the help of volunteers from your company or executed solely by the expert staff of the IFF.
Here at IFF we want to continue to be a resource for those leading the way in the spaces we renovate. By providing fitness and nutrition resources, continuing education and coaching clinics, we ensure that our schools never feel forgotten.
IMPACT offers Fitness Clinics along with our flagship Athlete Mentorship Program (AMP) to help educate coaches, mentors and athletes in all areas of health and fitness.
