Mission Statement

Moving

Physical activity offers the experience of making positive choices and getting positive results, and that forms the foundation of success.

Modeling

We take care of ourselves so we can take care of others. If we want children to adopt healthy behaviors we need to model the behavior ourselves.

Mentoring

When we mentor another person, it changes not only their life, but also our own.

A Message from Our CEO and Founder

~ Normandie Nigh

THE BEGINNING:

At a very young age, I was blessed with wonderful role models who inspired me not only to achieve but also to give back. I realized early on that physical activity, especially dance, made me feel energized and alive and helped me become more confident. 

At 12 years old, I began teaching dance to the younger girls in my neighborhood who didn’t have the same opportunities. I learned that sharing my knowledge with others who were less fortunate could make a difference in their lives as well.

This experience became a driving force in my life and my work. I’ve remained committed to making a difference and was privileged to use my passion for mentoring, movement, and healthy living in my work traveling the world as Reebok’s International Fitness Marketing Manager and working closely with Tony Robbins and many others.

THE FUTURE:

Over the last 26 years, as CEO of A World Fit for Kids!, I’ve been honored to work with amazing people to impact the lives of tens of thousands of children, young people and adults by providing exceptional expanded learning/afterschool programs in the greater Los Angeles area and offering our signature trainings for leadership teams and employees locally, nationally and across the globe.

We hope you will join us on this journey to co-creating a world in which we all lead fit and fulfilling lives!

Yours in good health,

Normandie Nigh, CEO
