UBU's 10-wk program is underway: Apr. 18-June 20
U-B-U is an active wellness program for young girls to grow peer connections, make physical activity a lifestyle & build self-confidence and leadership skills.
From April 18 - June 20, 2018, a max. of 12 girls will be coached weekly through a variety of physical, mental, social, emotional, and leadership activities by trained and certified instructors.
U-B-U stands for “You be you,” emphasizing the need for girls to be themselves and not second-guess it. Having girls shy away from speaking up for themselves, proving their abilities, and being less active is taking a huge toll on girls’ self-confidence and resulting in life-altering results: obesity, depression, promiscuity, anxiety, school challenges (i.e., low grades, reduced interest, bullying, etc.) and more.
There is a strong connection between the mind and body that is easily forgotten no matter your age, educational background, or fitness level.
U-B-U introduces the idea to young girls that if you take care of yourself by eating better, moving more, reaching out to others to talk or for help, when needed, it will have an instant and positive effect on your well-being. The mind and body directly impact one another by pulling each other up or down.
