Have you heard of a program here in town called Smart Fit Girls run through the City of Fort Collins’ Recreator?
It’s designed for girls in middle school (6th to 8th grade). The 10-week program attempts to counter the messages that our female youth are hearing in the media which is a BIG task.
The program consists of empowering young ladies to feel strong inside and out. The ladies who run the program facilitate self-esteem building activities and provide a safe space for tough discussions. Girls will not only build self-esteem, but they will also learn how to work out and lift weights.
“If tomorrow, women woke up and decided they really liked their bodies, just think how many industries would go out of business.” -Gail Dines
