Personal Fitness Merit Badge

Posted by Brian Hardy on May 10, 2016

/home/troop27/public html/v3/wp content/uploads/2016/05/personal fitnessFor all Scouts desiring to complete the 12 week exercise program and bi-weekly fitness assessments, we will begin this Tuesday, May 10th at 6:30.  Please meet in the playground area on the East side of the church.  I will have a sign up list at that time so I can maintain a list of who is participating and have the ability to communicate with you on the schedule for the subsequent meetings.

Before you begin, you must meet Requirement 1a “Before completing requirements 2 through 9, have your health-care practitioner give you a physical examination, using the Scout medical examination form.”  If you have not received a Blue Card yet for Personal Fitness, please see your merit badge coordinator during the meeting and get one.  Print out a copy of the merit badge worksheet and review the requirements at http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Personal_Fitness.

Our goal every two weeks will be to complete the bi-weekly fitness assessments.  After this weeks initial assessment you will need to outline your 12 week exercise program and have it approved by your parents and your merit badge counselor.  Mr. Hardy will be available during meetings to sign off on progress.

If you cannot be there this Tuesday, I will be there on May 17th as well to run the initial assessment.  Week 2 will begin on May 24th.  Additional dates will be communicated later.
