ProActiveKids Program At A Glance
What it is:
Designed in collaboration with physicians, psychologists, nutritionists, personal trainers, coaches and educational leaders, the ProActive Kids is a FREE comprehensive 8 week program that will introduce children ages 8 -14, and their families, to healthier lifestyle options. Children must be in the 85th percentile and above in BMI to qualify for the program. The program offers a fun and rewarding experience that consists of:
- Physical Fitness education and Workouts – 3 workouts a week!
- Nutrition Education around what to eat, how much to eat, emotional eating, as well as lessons on sugar, importance of breakfast, etc.
- Individual and Group Discussion on struggles they have with food, at school, within their family, around their weight, etc.
ProActive Kids is for boys and girls ages 8-14 who are struggling with their weight.
ProActive Kids activities will take place after school Mondays, Wednesdays (from 4 – 5:30) and Fridays from 4:00 p.m.- 6:00 p.m. starting Sept 16, 2013, for eight weeks.
Kids come alone on Monday and Wednesday and families are required to attend on Fridays, as this is a family effort! Please make sure at least one parent is able to attend AND participate on Fridays. The whole family (anyone over the age of 3) is welcome!
