Yakima Pediatric’s FAN! (Fitness and Nutrition) Program is an exciting new program where youth learn and develop good fitness and nutrition habits.
About the Program:
A youth is referred by a pediatrician if they feel it would be beneficial to the candidate’s health and well being. After an interview with a Behavioral Health Consultant, they are accepted into the program if the BHC agrees that the program is a good fit for the youth.
The program is free to participants and is administered through Volution Fitness and Healthy Eats Nutrition Service.
The program is an 8 weeks duration and accommodates 18 families. Family support for the participants is strongly encouraged.
What is included:
- An initial 30 minute meeting with a trainer and an initial 30 minute meeting with a nutritionist for the purpose of setting SMART goals
- A 2 hour cooking class and a 1 hour grocery store walk through during the course of the program
- Twice weekly 45 minute movement classes where students level up as goals are achieved and targets are met
- Weekly 15 minute consult with the nutritionist
- The parents and participating child get a gym membership for only $10.00 per month for the duration of the program
- At the end of the program, the participant can be referred back into the next program if the Pediatrician and the BHC feel it would be beneficial
The next program will begin Tuesday, June 6th.
