Commit 2B Fit Safe Routes to School
The Commit 2B Fit Safe Routes to School Program teaches children and their families how to utilize walking and bicycling as an excellent form of physical activity. The program places a heavy emphasis on walking/bicycling safety and is designed to integrate seamlessly into any Bicycling Safety Program.
The Commit 2B Fit journal is filled with safe walking and bicycling tips and information that complements fitness and nutrition journaling to provide a complete experience for the user. The parents of each student involved in the program also receive a Commit 2B Fit Adult Journal so they can mirror their children’s experience in this walking and bicycling project.
As the students learn about walking and biking safety, they log their daily nutrition and physical activity goals in their Commit 2B Fit journal. The journal begins with participants taking a pledge to Commit 2B Fit, whereupon they receive a special Walk Safe Bike Safe affirmation charm. Each child and parent also receives a pedometer as an accountability and motivational tool to encourage families walk together.
The Commit 2B Fit program is a natural fit with Safe Routes to School, provides a nutrition component and involves the family. This program can be integrated into bicycle safety training or used as a stand-alone without requiring any equipment, such as bicycles.
