Project Description

Every Friday morning at COA’s Burke Early Education Center, something unexpected happens; young children from Milwaukee’s Amani Neighborhood join a fitness instructor for two hours of morning exercise. Children at COA have been enjoying this physical programming for two years now, thanks to a partnership with Fit 4 You, Traveling Trainer. Fit 4 You provides on-going body and mind sessions for COA’s early education program, introducing children to mindfulness through yoga and physical fitness exercises.

Fit 4 You, Traveling Trainer co-founders, Rob and Jolie Brox

Co-Founders Rob and Jolie Brox are a husband and wife team who created Fit 4 You. Together, they team up with COA by providing a holistic instructional approach with our youth through strengthening exercises, fun play and respectful behavior.

“It simply made the most sense for us to partner with COA because it’s our mission to support those who actively support the community,” Rob said. “Plus, we love working with children. They keep my spirits youthful and they always make me smile along with all the staff.”

COA’s family-centered approach was another thing that made the partnership appealing to Rob, especially with having his own children coming to COA’s centers.

“I strongly believe in parent involvement,” he said. “It was important for me to partner with COA since all four of my children are currently enrolled in the program.”

Fit 4 You is a traveling trainer agency, bringing their services to your home, work, gym, school, church or local park. They motivate and educate clientele on how to have fun while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  Fit 4 You is approaching seven years of service to the community facilitating personal and group workout sessions, bootcamps, health fairs, and they also provide all natural fruit/veggie juices and lavender lemonade.
