Childhood Obesity and Fitness in Howard County

Since 2013, Elite SFN has helped individuals create a healthy and fit lifestyle involving physical fitness and wellness. Elite SFN is dedicated to help everyone achieve a healthy lifestyle with a safe family environment.

Childhood obesity has reached epidemic rates and is continuing to rise leading to mental, social, physical and emotional health issues that only get within time.  Nearly one third of children in America are overweight or obese, a rate that has tripled in adolescents and more than doubled in younger children since 1980. One third of all individuals born in the year 2000 or later will eventually suffer from health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer and asthma over the course of their lifetime.

Children are our future leaders and it is our job to educate and train them on maintaining their physical and mental health by bringing awareness and providing them methods of prevention. Along with obesity, Elite SFN would like to target and help children and young adults that are specifically in areas of poverty and crime so that these individuals would not be subjected to their living conditions but rather focus on the positive, becoming physically and mentally stronger and healthier.

Elite SFN offers boxing courses for youth.

Contact sports such as boxing helps bring about a positive change in which Elite SFN would sincerely love to be a part of with your child.  Although Elite SFN prides on its boxing program, we offer other programs that can be of interest to youth as well such as; weight training,  kickboxing, fitness boot-camps, personal training, kettlebell classes, hapkido, krav maga, Brazilian jiu jitsu, MMA, and more.

Elite SFN youth boxing is a proactive approach to reduce juvenile crime in Maryland.

Boxing gives youth a sense of belong in a family environment while teaching them the fundamental of boxing. Elite SFN is accredited with CPR and First Aid certifications. We would like to help individuals in physical and mental strength and health, by creating an individualized plan for each youth to target in assisting them specifically we believe we can make a significant difference.

For each individual we make a difference to, we are making a difference in the community itself as we promote self-confidence, team building, discipline, structure while all the while raising self-esteem.
