Take Your Family on a Journey toward a Healthier Life

Make healthy living and fitness a 2016 goal for your family by signing up for the next session of Family Fit. This fun, hands-on program helps families with children between the ages of six and 14 learn the importance of making healthy food choices and incorporating activity in their daily lives. Family Fit is sponsored by Adena Health System and the YMCA of Ross County.

The next six-week session of Family Fit begins Wednesday, Feb. 17. Classes meet each Wednesday through Mar. 23, 2016 at the YMCA of Ross County, located at 100 Mill St., Chillicothe.

Each week, the two-hour class focuses on a different health topic. The goal of Family Fit 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.

In a casual learning atmosphere, your family will learn new ways to shop and cook, while participating in cooking demonstrations, nutrition lessons, fun exercise routines and much more. The lessons are easy for all ages to follow, and are a great way to get the entire family involved in making healthy choices to last a lifetime.

The cost to join Family Fit is just $50 per family. This includes all materials and a six-week family membership to the YMCA of Ross County. As a bonus, families who attend all six Family Fit classes will receive an additional six-week family membership to the YMCA at no extra cost (a more than *$200 value).

Register for Family Fit no later than Friday, Feb. 12, 2016. Class size is limited to enable Adena’s dieticians the ability to provide the personal counseling and coaching needed for the program, so call today. To register or learn more information about Family Fit call (740) 779-7520.

*Based on YMCA’s published Family rate of $57 month + $50 joining fee
