PopFit Kids on Little Water Radio. This week we welcome Mara Wedeck and Maria Chatman from PopFit Kids onto The Downtowner. Tune in on Thursday to learn more about the PopFit Kids philosophy and what they bring to lower Manhattan.
PopFit Kids is a FUNctional Fitness club with a mission to empower children on the importance of anytime, anywhere exercising, and an objective to provide them with the tools for developing life-long healthy habits.
Whether focusing on muscle coordination and motor planning skills, teaching a junior athlete how to lateral lunge with accuracy, or engaging in high-energy jump rope training — PopFit provides a variety of programming that speaks to all age groups.
Mara Wedeck started one of the first marketing and public relations agency dedicated to socially conscious companies whose mission was centered on sustainability and healthy living. She is passionate about the health and well-being of kids and their planet. Through working with clients such as Whole Foods Market, Applegate Farms, and Happy Families, she actively pursued the ‘healthy lunchbox’ conversation. After the birth of her son, she realized that there was not effort begin made for the proper fitness for kids. This leadMara to set out on her campaign to provide programming for kids that was healthy and fun.
Maria Chatman, a former lifestyle consultant for one of the biggest health and wellness management companies in NY, realized that there were not many accessible fitness and nutrition programs open to kids. She worked in community family health programming and her own personal fitness endeavors and noticed the market was lacking alternatives to traditional youth sports.
Their mission: Help kids help themselves to a healthier way of life.
