Friend Fitness Program

Successful people have three common personal traits.  They:

  • Set challenging goals for themselves
  • Are mentally tough, and resilient in the face of adversity  
  • Show respect for themselves and others by taking responsibility for their own actions

Friend Fitness, YMP’s signature mentoring program, is designed to instill these traits in each student.   The program matches volunteer mentors with local teenagers who have varying fitness levels, personal backgrounds, and life circumstances, but that can all benefit from a positive adult role model.

Our unique approach combines intense weekly strength training workouts with challenging physical, academic, and social goal setting and achievement.   The result?  Students discover what it takes to be successful not only in the gym, but in life!
