Your dollars support thousands of low-income beneficiaries, many of them with special needs.
Robust programming is our priority, working with community partners to provide daily classes, specialty training, nutrition counsel, food prep and healthy cooking for low-income communities. Fit 4 The Cause serves vulnerable children at Ventura County’s Public Schools, at-risk teens through after school programs and fragile seniors with free community classes throughout Los Angeles County and Thousand Oaks.
We take pride in directly funding physical fitness programs with your donations. A grant from Ventura County Human Services allows us rent free office space at Community Conscience where we live and serve 12 local non-profit organizations. The founder gave up her corporate salary to serve the community with her heart, soul and body. She keeps operating costs low and service provision high, filling the healthcare crisis void with practical solutions.

This community class is open to everyone at no charge. The Fit 4 The Cause community makes you feel welcome immediately. Even as a novice, I have fun and easily follow along. This class is motivating and allows you to concentrate on being in the moment. When the class ends, I have so much energy that lasts through the weekend.

I am a survivor. But, since meeting and working with Cindy – I am now Thriving! This week, I went to The City of Hope for my lab work and check-up with my oncologist. The results are in and quite simply…..I am outstanding. I have never been this fit, developing core strength, and healthier in general.
