Leaders In Fitness Training (LIFT)
Leaders in Fitness Training (LIFT) is an eight-month fitness and wellness focused program for 9th grade girls. Students will work with a personal trainer one time per week for eight months learning the basics of strength training, yoga, running and nutrition. LIFT culminates with a 7-day expedition to the Appalachian Trail during Collier County’s Spring Break in March. The purpose of this program is to incorporate healthy living habits into the every day lives of teens at an earlier age.
10th & 11th Grade Girls
January – June, 2020
Summit Sisters is based off of Wellfit Girls’ comprehensive leadership, fitness and empowerment curriculum, which previously culminated in an expedition to Peru. We are shifting our signature five-month program into a two-year progression model for 10th and 11th graders in Lee and Collier County.
Participants will meet twice per week January through June of their sophomore and junior years. Each year, the program will culminate with a different domestic expedition in June in the western United States (Colorado, Montana, Utah, etc.). The purpose of this two-year program is to build deeper relationships with youth, provide more in-depth leadership training and create a safe space for girls to connect with nature, each other and most importantly, themselves.

Mentors in Action
Mentors in Action is an opportunity for rising seniors who want to dive deeper into the Wellfit Girls leadership, fitness and empowerment curriculum, serve as a mentor and put what they have learned over the past two years into action. Mentors in Action is open to any rising senior from Lee and Collier County who has completed Wellfit Girls’ signature Summit Sisters program. Girls may apply to be a mentor for the Wellfit Adventure Camp (WAC), Leaders in Fitness Training (LIFT) or Summit Sisters. Two mentors will be selected for each program.
This opportunity is a natural follow-up for girls who were involved in our Summit Sisters program. Additionally, it ensures that all girls who want to take on a leadership role at Wellfit Girls have the opportunity to receive additional leadership training and coaching from our professional staff as they transition from high school to college and/or the workforce.
Wellfit Connects is an initiative to support alumni after high school by connecting them with mentors, other alumni and additional opportunities for travel and personal growth. Through an online portal, Wellfit Girls alumni will have an opportunity to connect with adults in their same field of work, internships, job opportunities, career counseling, community service, networking events, alumni trips and more. An alumni is considered anyone who has completed an expedition with Wellfit Girls.
Our goal is to offer additional support and personal growth opportunities to girls in their first two years post high school. Alumni will also have opportunities to participate in an annual alumni expedition.
Please fill out the form for any general questions and we will get back with you soon.
