Registration Open for February Session of Family Fit

Start the New Year off right by helping your family adopt healthy eating and exercise habits. Sign-up today for the next session of Family Fit, a fun-filled, family-oriented program that helps families with children, between the ages of six and 14. Family Fit is sponsored by Adena Health System and the YMCA of Ross County.

The next Family Fit session begins Wednesday, Feb. 25 and runs through Wednesday, April 1. Classes are held at the YMCA, located at 100 Mill St., Chillicothe. Each session of Family Fit brings families together for two hours, one day a week, for six weeks. Classes include: cooking demonstrations, meal planning, exercise, and behavior counseling taught by Adena dietitians.

The goal is to enhance family health and activity through fun, games and hands on learning. As a family lifestyle program, Family Fit works when children take part with their parents to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

The cost to join Family Fit is just $50 per family. This includes all materials and a three-month family membership to the YMCA of Ross Co. for families that attend each of the six sessions. For more information about Family Fit, or to register call (740) 779-7520.
