Get Fit Gets Started12:00AM / Monday, March 12, 2007
North Adams- Northern Berkshire families will again have the
opportunity to take part in a free nutrition and fitness program that
teaches families how to be healthy for life.
"Families Making Changes" is a free program offered by the Get Fit program of the REACH Community Health Foundation. It is a six-week program with workshops on fitness, nutrition, and strategies for permanent lifestyle change. The instructors will work with each family to develop an individualized plan.
Classes begin on Tuesday, March 27 and run through Tuesday, May 1.
The classes are held at the Clark House on the North Adams Regional Hospital campus from 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.. Children are welcome. Instructors will include a REACH fitness specialist and registered dietitians from North Adams Regional Hospital.
"What a great way to kick off the spring," said Jennifer Munoz, Get Fit program co-manager. "Families Making Changes will teach you and your family strategies for time management, assist with building an exercise program for the whole family, show you how to prepare healthy meals and snacks, and much more."
"Families Making Changes" was made possible by a grant from the James and Robert Hardman Fund for North Adams of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.
To register for the program, call Munoz at 413-664-5284.
