Meet Cheri Dickmeyer
In June 2015, FITGirl Founder & Executive Director Cheri Dickmeyer, felt the local community was in need of a summer camp that focused on both fitness and empowerment for teen girls. Through personal experience with two teen daughters of her own, Cheri wanted to develop a program that would help middle school and high school girls deal with anxiety, bullying, body image, self esteem, friendships and fitness.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, regular physical activity in childhood and adolescence improves strength and endurance, helps build healthy bones and muscles, helps control weight, reduces anxiety and stress, increases self-esteem, and may improve blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
However, around 70 percent of kids in the United States stop playing organized sports by the age of 13 because “it’s just not fun anymore,” according to a poll from the National Alliance for Youth Sports.
By age 14, only 1 in 10 girls are doing enough physical activity to benefit their health compared with roughly twice the number of boys of the same age.*
