Get Fit By Finals encourages teens to drink 3 glasses of lowfat or fat free milk a day to help get the nine essential nutrients active bodies need, including calcium, protein, vitamin D and potassium. "It's a simple behavior change that can add up to make a big difference," says Gidus. "Choosing lowfat or fat free milk over nutrient void beverages is one easy way teens can cut out empty calories and in their place, get important nutrients to help them look and feel healthy."
Get Fit With Your School
Get Fit By Finals will be encouraging schools across the country to rise to the challenge to improve teens' health and fitness. Tens of thousands of schools nationwide will receive special Get Fit activation kits that will include expert fitness and nutrition videos, tips and drills from the NBA, and posters and banners of Chris Paul and Diana Taurasi for school cafeterias and gyms that will urge teens to get fit. From February through June, NBA and WNBA players, legends and trainers will be making stops at secondary schools across the country to rally students to Get Fit By Finals.
