HEALTHY KIDS ARE HAPPY KIDS
With the rise in childhood obesity and screen time, it is now more vital than ever that children are active, not just for their physical health but also their mental and emotional wellbeing. Minifit has crafted programs for schools to get the best out of students
in both the field and inside classrooms.
"To deliver a quality physical education program to schools
So that thousands of students per year understand the importance of hydration, nutrition, physical
activity, sleep and screen time."
DESIGNED FOR STUDENTS
MiniFit is a structured school program designed to decrease obesity through physical activity, nutrition and wellbeing.
MiniFit was founded to encourage health and fitness, and improve the growth and development, of children - drawing on 5 core pillars.
Building strong muscles and bones through gross motor skills, movement and interactive games.
Optimising diet, using whole, fresh and nutritious foods to fuel their bodies and boost immunity.
Keeping the body’s water levels at optimum to boost concentration, learning and development.
Boosting brain development, body repair and regeneration through rest and active recovery.
“Over the past 6 weeks we have been having a fantastic time with Anthony Minichiello and Rick Leone participating in their MiniFit program. The staff and children have had a great time and we are so looking forward to the final 4 weeks. We will be sad to see them leave us this year.”

Anthony ‘Mini' Minichiello is the most-capped player for the Sydney Roosters and is the leading try scorer in their history. In an NRL career that spanned over 15 seasons, Mini played in six grand finals and won two Premierships.

Mini played for Australia on 19 occasions, made 11 appearances for the NSW Blues and represented NSW City four times, and captained Italy in the 2013 World Cup.
