Campus Life FIT

Athletic Training and Development

Campus Life Faith in Training is a program that aims to challenge students physically through athletic development, socially through team activities, mentally to make healthy choices, and spiritually by connecting them to Jesus. Kids work with our Health and Fitness Director, Chris Holton, and Matt Leppien.

Our mission is to provide the best fitness and faith-building program for middle and high school-aged students that utilize methods most appropriate to where they are in their biopsychosocial (biological, psychological, and social) development. In terms of where they are in their development, teens and pre-teens are not just small adults, which means they should not be given a fitness program designed for adults.

PROGRAMS

Campus Life FIT has a variety of programs throughout the year for different age groups, led by our Campus Life FIT Directors:

Chris has a master's degree in exercise science. He is also a certified speed and agility coach and is the strength and conditioning coach for Alma College’s football and basketball teams.

Matt has a master’s degree in exercise science, as well as a personal training certification. He has experience training a variety of teams and students of all ages in the aspects of health, wellness, and fitness.
