Champions Youth Fitness Teams Up With KidShape 2.0 And ISSA, Raising The Level Of Wellness Programming Available To Kids, Families

POMPANO BEACH, Fla., March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Champions Youth Fitness ( announced that it is teaming up with KidShape 2.0 and the International Sports Science Association (ISSA), two nationally recognized wellness programs, a move that broadens the company's fitness efforts and raises the level of wellness programing available to pre-teens.

"We plan to put a dent in the childhood obesity problem in our society," said Paul Bosley, the founder of Champions Youth Fitness in Pompano Beach. "We'll offer the four pillars of good health: strength, flexibility, cardio and nutrition, which are key to establishing optimum wellbeing."

Champions and KidShape 2.0 will franchise stand-alone fitness centers and establish programs at existing gyms and community centers with exercise equipment, group classes and nutrition services for kids under 12.

"We'll give families the information and tools to change behavior, eat healthier, move more and feel good," said Saeb Jannoun, KidShape 2.0 CEO, of Tampa.

The partnership with the ISSA guarantees that a personal trainer at each Champions location will receive a scholarship for a youth fitness personal training certification. ISSA personal training certification is recognized worldwide and is highly coveted in the health care industry.

"We believe that it's critical for the fitness profession to help get kids in shape and Champions will have a huge impact on making that happen," said Dr. Sal Arria, co-founder and CEO of ISSA.

Champions Youth Fitness centers and programs will feature Panetta Sport strength and cardiovascular workout equipment for children, exergaming interactive videos, personal trainers and Pilates, along with nutrition classes.

"Since many schools have cut physical education, obesity rates have skyrocketed. We have to offer families ways to help kids get healthy," Bosley said.  "Champions intends to play a key role in reversing the growing obesity epidemic that has been the focus of national initiatives like Michelle Obama's 'Let's Move' campaign."
