In response to a request from Troop 72, I'm beginning a Personal Fitness Merit badge class. I'm opening this up to Scouts in our Troop also. Our first session will be Sunday, July 8th at 2pm at Sunshine Park. I'm limiting this to Scouts who are 2nd year and above since the group from Troop 72 is a very large group (17 Scouts) (They are also limited to 2nd year and above.) Please reinforce with the Scouts that if they do not complete the requirements listed below by the time we meet July 8th, I will not allow them to start i.e., I'll send them home.
Please understand that this is a 12-week commitment on the part of the Scouts…even if they are going on vacation, they will need to do the fitness program that they will design (which shouldn't be a problem…you can still run and do sit ups and push ups wherever you are in the world)
Anyhow, just wanted to let everyone know of this opportunity.
