Get Ready for Spring With Adena’s Family Fit Program

Spring is just around the corner, and now is the time to start your family on a path to better health. Register now for the next six-week session of the Family Fit Program, sponsored by Adena Health System and the YMCA of Ross County.

Family Fit is a fun-filled, family oriented program that will start children and their families on a lifetime journey of health and confidence.  Each class brings together families with children between the ages of 6 and 14 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 next Family Fit Program will begin on Wednesday, Mar. 12 and run for six consecutive weeks through Apr. 16. Classes are held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the YMCA of Ross County, located at 100 Mill Street, Chillicothe.

Adena Health System is focused on the health and future of our region’s children and families. Our team of physicians and dieticians are available to help members of our community adopt healthy habits that are intended to make a positive, lifelong impact on the wellbeing of our children and families.

The six-week, Family Fit Program costs $50 per family, which includes all materials and a three-month family membership to the YMCA of Ross County - at no additional cost. For more information about the Family Fit Program or to register call (740) 779-7520.
