we are the quality coaching collective
In 2010, Nike initiated a process with over 70 organizations worldwide to better understand the underlying issues related to physical inactivity and help consolidate the facts and findings on the topic. The goal was to establish a unified path forward for action. They shared their findings in a report called Designed to Move.
"Designed to Move is founded on a robust evidence base. The science is clear, the debate is over. Urgent Priority must be given to dramatically increase the worlds commitment to physical activity. Designed to Move is a framework for action. It’s meant for the changemakers—people, companies, institutions and governments with the resources to turn this situation around. It’s for nations who want to invest in unleashing the human potential of their citizens.”

At the exact same time as the Designed to Move Report was published, a small group of fitness professionals were engaged by elementary schools to “speak to the children about the importance of physical activity”. This presented the gaps in the physical activity (and comprehension of physical literacy) pathway; plenty of information & education (what & why), limited activation & accountability (how) strategy. After a six month University audit of North American programs complete with feedback from kids, parents, teachers, coaches and superintendents, we launched our first mass participation activation campaign, the 60 Minute Kidsclub.
The 60 Minute Kidsclub Program addressed all the factors that play into a great experience for kids (fig. 3.1) and eventually a constituent from the Designed to Move team would connect the 60 Minute Kidsclub to the Designed to Move Champions. Since then, the 60 Minute Kidsclub Program has scaled from a single school supporting the development of healthy habits and fundamental movement skills to supporting schools around the world and the accompanying engagement strategy has proven effective across multiple marketplaces.
