Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a ninja that you see on TV? Besides being physically active and in shape, what other things help them be successful? Michigan 4-H is offering a fun SPIN club opportunity for youth ages 9 to 19 to learn about what it takes to be a ninja. Each week different topics will be explored to help youth be active and strive to be healthy through an online zoom meeting. In addition, youth will participate in a goose chase activity that will give them missions and challenges throughout the week. 

Topics that will be covered include: 

  • Goal setting - What are my physical fitness goals?  How am I going to accomplish them?
  • Strength - Ninjas have to have strength both physically and mentally. What are ways to gain strength in these two areas? 
  • Physical activity - Exercise can help ninjas move and gain flexibility.
  • Good nutrition - Ninjas must eat right to perform at their best. What does good nutrition look like?
  • Balance - Working on balance is fundamental in ninja training, let's explore ways to build balance into your everyday routines. 
  • Mindfulness - Ninjas must work hard but also have to focus on the little things. Learn some strategies that build patience and focus during your training. 

Youth that complete the 4-H SPIN club will have the opportunity to interact with 2020 American Ninja Warrior Winner, Daniel Gil. He will speak to Michigan 4-H youth and friends at the end of March. More information will come out about that awesome opportunity.

Fun T-shirts will be provided to youth that participate in each week of the SPIN Club.
