We all know that physical fitness is a state of being that reflects a person's ability to perform specific exercises or functions, and is related to present and future health outcomes.

Physical fitness is a general state of health and well-being and, more specifically, the ability to perform aspects of sports, occupations and daily activities. Fitness is generally achieved through proper nutrition, moderate-vigorous physical exercise, and sufficient rest.

The Special Olympics South Africa team recently launched a Fitness Curriculum called “SO FIT” and has just been recently introduced in the Northwest Province at 3 different regions, Moroleng, Ganyesa and Taung. Our coaches and athletes participated in the 2 day training and will now have to continue with the 8 weeks of practicals as per the curriculum. What an exciting journey this will be!

We cannot wait to see the results of the training, and we wish all the best to our athletes!
