Summary The purpose of this project was to create a physical fitness/self-esteem program for sedentary middle school girls that will improve mental and physical health, while increasing CST scores. The 10-week program focuses on the current physical and emotional needs of adolescent girls and strives to improve both. The facilitator of the program can choose from a variety of self-esteem lessons that best match the current needs of group members. The physical fitness lessons were created to be fun, while increasing cardiovascular fitness. Also, the cardio lessons can be easily adjusted to meet the fitness level of the participants. At the end of the program participants will have increased their self-concept, fitness level, and in turn, perform better on standardized tests.
