Personal Fitness Merit Badge Kickoff

Posted on Nov 21 2015 - 4:17pm

We will be starting the Personal Fitness Merit Badge at the Nov 22nd Scout Meeting.   We will need to limit the number of scouts to around 10 scouts for the initial group.   Depending on the interest level we can start a 2nd group of scouts in Janurary.   

For the first meeting we will be working on the initial measurements for the Muscular Strenght Test: Sit-Ups and Push-Ups, the Fexiblity Test, and the Body Composition Test.   For the next meeting the scouts will be required to have their 12 week physical fitness program plan defined.    This merit badge will required scouts to check-in to measure the same tests on a 2-3 week interval to record progress through the 12 week period.

See Mr Schlotman at the scout meeting if you are interested
