NorthFit Creamery, formerly known as CrossFit Fort Atkinson, was founded in 2012 and has since changed ownership to husband and wife, Jeb Simmons and Meg Zechel in 2014. Both Jeb and Meg are local to the Fort Atkinson area and have developed their niche in the community with one goal in mind, to provide the guidance on exercise, health, wellness, and nutrition. For the 2018-2019 school year, NorthFit has partnered with Crown of Life Christian Academy to direct and lead their physical education program, coaching ages kindergarten through eighth grade.
NorthFit’s mission is to offer a wide variety of learning experiences and character building for all students and help develop physical, cognitive and social skills to obtain and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Students in the physical education program will be required to participate in a wide variety of physical skills, sports and activities. Children will develop positive self-esteem and a sense of self-efficacy by setting realistic goals, create relationships with their peers through an environment that encourages everyone to participate and work as a team, have the knowledge to make physically educated decisions, and learn to choose physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and/or social interaction.
The goals of CLCA’s physical education program emphasizes instruction and adhere to rules, learning new skills and strategies of team and individual sports, continue to develop physical fitness and cardiovascular endurance, have practical experiences in leadership, teamwork, and sportsmanship, and development of a positive self-image in a safe, structured environment. Expectations include participation in all games and activities, respect for peers and instructors, proper care of equipment, and cooperation. The P.E. program is designed to enable each child to achieve success while creating an interest in life-long physical activity.
The NorthFit coaching staff follow the state and national standards for a physical education program.
Showing their support in the community, NorthFit could not be more excited for this opportunity to teach the kids of what it means to live a healthy and fulfilling life.
