FIT For Health


FIT (Families Improving Together) FOR HEALTH, is a free 11-week healthy lifestyle program for parents and their kids to attend and learn together. Families learn together some fun physical activities, information about healthy habits, calorie goals and self-monitoring, as well as positive parenting styles and tips. The program was created by a grant funded by the National Institutes of Health (Dr. Heather Kitzman, Baylor Scott & White Health) in collaboration with the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas.*
