About Us


It is the mission of North American Fitness and Health (NAFH) to provide America with a convenient, fun and effective opportunity for our youth and their families to increase their fitness levels and well being. 

NAFH provides the functional movement basics so necessary for children to succeed when they begin sports and dance. Functional movement also provides children the correct techniques and knowledge that helps prevent injury. Because of the need for functional movement techniques, NAFH enhances school fitness programs. It is very much like learning mathematics. Without learning the basics of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing (the foundational math skills) the advanced skills of algebra and geometry will be much more difficult at best.  Or, without the foundational movement skills, more risky in the case of dance and sports.
