Maria Chatman is the co-founder of PopFit Kids, a mobile children’s fitness organization based in New York City where kids learn why "It’s Cool to Move." Maria’s extensive experience in family health programming coupled with her intense interest in personal fitness led her to realize there was a lack of accessible fitness programs for kids who either needed an alternative to traditional youth sports or just a fun place to move. The mission of PopFit Kids is to get kids excited about physical activity and teach them that lifelong healthy habits can be fun! The PopFit Kids “Fit Five” curriculum—Cardio, Strength, Flexibility, Balance & Endurance—inspires movement while engaging children on the fundamentals of fitness. Maris holds the following certifications: ACE Group Fitness, AFPA Children’s Fitness Specialist, Karma Kids Yoga, Baptiste Level 1 Yoga, and TRX.
