Team Fit for Children Weight Loss, Activity & Nutrition Education for Children, 8-12 8-week session, start date TBA. Screenings are mandatory and must be done before the start of the program... there's still time to register!
Team Fit for Children returns for another year of fun, activity and nutrition education! Over the course of the eight-week program, children and their parents (and siblings!) will learn about all of the fun ways to be active and eat right.
Children will experience all kinds of fitness options:
• Circuit Training for Kids • Swimming • Baseball • Kung Fu • TRX • Pilates • And many, many more!
All of these are supervised by our JCC certified trainers and are guaranteed to bring a smile and get your children up and active.
The program also features nutrition classes for kids, moms, dads and the whole family! Nutritionists from Baptist Health Systems will provide hands-on cooking and eating tips that can help you and your children become happier and healthier.
This is NOT a boot camp! Activities take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. The whole family can come on Saturdays, from 11am - 1pm, for nutrition and sports fun (at least one parent is required at these sessions).
Screening is required. Children must be at-risk for obesity. Cost is TBA and will include a full family membership in the JCC for the entire eight-week program.
