Monday, June 11th began signups for the mayor’s Club Fit Kids’ program. The program, which will run for four weeks between the months of July and August, was a huge success among Everett’s youth and their families last year.
The Mayor has remained committed to bringing more health and wellness opportunities and education to Everett and its residents. The administration developed the Club Fit Kids’ program out of the Health and Wellness Center to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for children between the ages of 4-9. The curriculum includes indoor as well as outdoor fitness play along with daily nutritional segments.
Fitness games, play and challenges have nutritional lessons directly related to them, so children can better understand each lesson in a fun and creative way.
The mayor stated, “We want to teach kids how to incorporate healthy living into their daily lives. In this program, children learn, through games and interactive fitness activities, the importance of a healthy physical self and making the appropriate food choices to maintain that health.”
In addition to learning the importance of proper nutrition, children will also learn the fundamentals of basic exercise. They will acquire ways to have fun, while also staying fit and how to easily incorporate physical activity into their everyday routine. The program participants will also be introduced to some of the new parks available to them within the community as part of outdoor adventures.
To signup, please pickup an application at the Health and Wellness Center. For more information or questions, please contact Gina Matarazzo at Gina.Matarazzo@ci.everett.ma.us.
