Better Bodies 4 Us, L.L.C.

Hello! I’m Charleszetta Smith Ford. Thanks for visiting my Directory Page.

I am a high-energy licensed physical education teacher, certified personal trainer, and author with over eighteen years of experience in the health and fitness field. After working in public schools for six years, I realized that the only way I could create an environment where students could have fun while exercising in a structured manner was to design my own large-scale youth-fitness program. I took a leap of faith and launched Better Bodies 4 Us, full time, in 2011.

Each week, I visit a different elementary school to implement my Youth Fitness program. Seeing my students’ excitement to exercise with me brings such joy to my heart and confirms, daily, that I am doing exactly what God has called me to do—changing lives one day at a time, physically, mentally, and spiritually.

My love for encouraging children to move motivated me to write my first book, B3 Goes to the Playground, last year. It is my hope that many children and families, near and far, will be motivated to exercise and enrich their lives together.

Better Bodies 4 Children - Obstacle Course

Program description

Better Bodies 4 Children’s Obstacle Course program is a fitness class which focuses on developing your students in the area of healthy living, physical fitness, leadership and self-esteem. Our warm-up gives your students the chance to practice their locomotor and non-locomotor skills. Prior to beginning the workout, one student is selected to demonstrate the obstacle course in order to improve his or her leadership skills and to increase their self-esteem. This program begins and ends with a discussion of the muscles being stretched, nutrition and physical activity. At the end of this class, your students are encouraged to make better nutritional choices and to be more active at home.

Our Youth Fitness program is designed to help fight the childhood obesity epidemic that threatens to take the lives of so many children today. Each student’s strength, endurance and flexibility will increase while improving their locomotor and non-locomotor skills. Also, we desire to encourage our youth to have a better outlook on what they can do in order to live a healthy life.

Your students will complete an obstacle course that challenges them to jump over hurdles, crawl through hula hoops and run through ladders; just to name a few things. This activity will give your students the opportunity to have fun while exercising in a non-competitive, fun-loving environment. Because of the fun that your students will experience while exercising, it is our hope that they will share all that they learn and do with their family and friends. The overall goal of Better Bodies 4 Us is to encourage our community to start moving together.
