As a troop we will be working on the personal fitness merit badge for scouts eighth grade and older. We will be working on this together for 12 weeks led by Dr. Saxman, Mr Braham, Mr Yozzo. The first meeting will be this Sunday, December 3 at 1 PM until 2:30 PM at Spencer View Apartments 2250 Patterson St where Carlo Yozzo has secured a meeting space near the South Eugene track.
In addition to learning together about various aspects of personal fitness and health, each scout will develop a 12-week fitness plan and work on their own program at home. We will meet periodically on several Sunday afternoons to measure and record our progress. Participating scouts should plan on attending the meetings listed below. If you can’t make an individual meeting, you can bring your log data to troop the following Tuesday.
Dates: Sunday Dec 3 1PM (initial meeting)
Sunday, December 31 (4 week mark)
Sunday, January 28 (8 week mark)
Sunday, February 25 (12 week final meeting)
Before the initial meeting this Sunday, each scout should print out a copy of the Personal Fitness Merit Badge Workbook
and bring it with them to the meeting. Wear athletic shorts and layers of loose clothing for indoor/outdoor exercise.
Section 1 of the merit badge Includes completion of a physical exam and dental check up. We have documentation of physical exams from the BSA part C forms, but each scout should bring a note from their parent or other documentation with the date of their last dental exam.
