FitKids Program – A Healthy Lifestyle Program For Children
Exercise is vital to the health and well-being of children. The FitKids Program is a fun, interactive program for kids, focused on encouraging a healthy lifestyle. Our program goals are to encourage kids to stay active, promote their self-confidence and reduce rates of childhood obesity.
FitKids is available to eligible participants who meet certain health criteria and are patients of our NewYork-Presbyterian outpatient locations:
• Theresa Lang Children’s Ambulatory Center
• Jackson Heights Family Health Center
• Fresh Meadows Pediatric Multispecialty Clinic
Led by a certified exercise physiologist, our age-appropriate exercise sessions are conducted in a safe and non-competitive environment. Young participants will have access to exercise sessions along with integrated nutrition counseling -- 5 days a week, all year round.
