New York City, NY (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
The New York City-based startup that has taken the nation’s elementary schools by storm is reporting good news: our kids are exercising more and having fun doing it.
During September, “National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month,” Adventure to Fitness introduced several initiatives to promote even more physical activity across the country. The company provided discounts on all of their exercise videos for kids and also launched a referral initiative to bring their free workout routines for kids to even more schools. The community, which now consists of over 16,000 schools, responded in spades.
“Today, we’re proud to announce that September 2013 was one of the most successful months to-date for bringing new teachers on board,” stated Michael Rhattigan, Chief Adventure Officer of Adventure to Fitness. “We saw close to 4,000 teachers sign up this month. Additionally, kids around the nation racked up more than 225,000 minutes of exercise with our program this month alone. We couldn’t be more thrilled for the millions of kids across the nation who are starting on the path to lifelong wellness early.”
