Excel2fitness. You ask what it is? Well let me you. It is hard work, commitment, teamwork and camaraderie fitness program for boys. This was Rock Rest’s first year participating in the program that has been developed for boys only, to work on character building, teamwork, strength, endurance, and agility.
This is a six week program where the boys meet twice a week. Each session we worked on a different section and or goal. After the 12 classes we put it all together at the Big Event. This took place on June 2nd at Weddington Elementary. We competed against many other schools, beating out Indian Trail. Coach Leibel and I were very proud of the boys and the way they fought through the obstacle course. The boys encouraged and helped each other through the course along with cheering on other teams.
We would also like to thank Steve Vaughn for developing the program and subsidizing the cost for our students to participate. We are looking forward to participating in this program again next year. We need dads to volunteer for the Excel2fitnees next year. If you are interested we would love to hear from you when we begin the program next year.
