Funfit was created by 2 Maryland sisters, Celia Kibler (shown with kids) and Maddi Cheers in 1987. Celia is President of Funfit, Inc. and manages all operations, programming, as well as teaches many of the classes offered in Maryland/Washington DC metro area. Celia is Certified by NESTA/PACE in personal training for kids, by IFA in Sports Nutrition, is a Level 3 Radiant Child Yoga Certified Instructor and holds a BS from the University of Maryland, College of Human Ecology. Funfit grew out of Celia & Maddi's wish to develop a program for kids that would fulfill the need for physical activity in a society that only rewards children and adults that are gifted in a specific sport. Being "the last picked for teams" themselves, Celia and Maddi decided there has to be a better way. The Funfit program was created to promote healthy lifestyles and battle the increasing epidemic of childhood obesity. Activities de-emphasizes competition and emphasizes the importance of fun and play, thus creating a desire for kids and families to maintain a healthy and active life-style as they grow.
