It was interesting for ME to learn about Fitwits, as I'm very interested in fitness and wellness. Plus, there is a keen interest in afterschool education.

I like the design elements they had too.

But, all in all -- it is very much a remedial program. It is about the basics, like 1-2-3. It is for 5th graders, they say. Humm...

I, personally, have a different approach.

As a coach, I want to push, pull, challenge and motivate kids and participants. Burning energy in exercise, and eating enough for those activities, is important. That is mostly absent in the Fitwits program.

So, I'm more about Creating Literate Olympians Here.

But, different strokes for different folks.
