Wellfit Girls Empowers Teen Girls To Climb High In All Areas Of Life

Wellfit Girls is committed to providing unique and meaningful leadership, fitness and empowerment programs for teen girls in Collier and Lee County. Our comprehensive youth development model is designed to build resiliency and deepen relationships with youth through fitness & leadership training, community service, cultural immersion experiences, outdoor adventures & experiential learning opportunities. Girls have the choice to participate in any or all of our programs for as little as three weeks or for as long as four years.

Each program concludes with a domestic expedition that guides teens through a combination of physical, mental and interpersonal challenges designed to prepare them mentally, physically and emotionally to overcome past, present and future obstacles. The struggles they will experience on the mountain will correlate to life struggles they may currently have or may have in future years. They will learn they can accomplish anything they put their mind to. The goal is to inspire and empower each girl while nurturing and developing each girl’s individual leadership style. We are building strong women to be our future leaders. We believe you cannot have transformation without tension.

Each program is designed to help girls overcome self-esteem issues and learn coping mechanisms as well as social entrepreneurship, leadership and communication skills. The girls workout with a personal trainer, learn yoga and have weekly leadership sessions. The girls are asked to dig deep in terms of who they are now and the person they want to become. The idea is that you are not BORN a warrior, but you GROW into one!

Warrior One

A Full-length Documentary of the Orginal Wellfit Girls

In 2014, the entire journey was filmed as a feature length documentary, but Wellfit Girls is more than just a movie, it’s a movement. The hope is for the film to have a global impact, sharing the mentality that women and girls can change the world.

These girls have incredible stories to share, stories that will inspire other teens across the country and all over the world. From depression and anxiety to self-harm and abuse, body issues and poverty, the film touches on several key issues facing our youth today.

“This program has taught me to leave behind the fear of rejection as it causes me to lose opportunities in my life. Every Wellfit Girl and leader has encouraged me to embrace my hunger to achieve the impossible and to realize that I have the capability to reach within to go beyond what I ever thought was attainable. I can now move forward in my life without self-doubt and with an assured sense of confidence.”

– Madison

Fort Myers High School

“I am now able to use my voice to stand up for myself and others. I can proudly say I was able to speak out in front of the group to stand up for a friend. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do, but it has given me the strength and power to know I can continue doing that for others and myself. It has also allowed me to accept myself for who I am and truly love myself and not be so concerned with what others think of me.”

– A.J

Community School of Naples

“Before the Wellfit Girls program, I had a lot of negative self-talk to myself telling myself I can’t do things but ever since I got in this program I have a lot of positive things coming my way. I feel like I have a new life ahead of me.”

– Dasia

PACE Center for Girls Lee County

“The Wellfit Girls Program taught her how powerful her mind is and that if she stays focused, she can do anything her heart dreams of. Reaching the top of the mountain taught her exactly that. I would recommend this program to anybody that has a daughter.”

“This program has definitely impacted me in such a positive way. When I started out I couldn’t even run a mile without stopping, but through hard work and dedication, I can now run five miles without stopping. This is hands down one of the greatest experiences.”

– Lily

“Joining Wellfit Girls was the best choice I made in my life. It was a life changing experience. I went into the program with all of these burdens on my heart, but I came out very light. I was able to let go of everything that has happened. Even though things will continue in my life, I can now look at them differently.”
