  • About Our Fun2BFit Program

    Fun2BFit is a program designed to meet the needs of overweight children and their families in surrounding communities. Children will have the opportunity to participate in 1-hour group exercise sessions at least twice per week, led by YMCA staff, offered in a fun, non-competitive environment. All activities in the group exercise sessions are tailored to the age and capabilities of the children enrolled and include:

      • Stretching
      • Cardiovascular Training
      • Strength Training
      • Active group games

    The purpose of Fun2BFit is to both reverse the trends of childhood obesity and to take responsibility within our communities to provide programs which will promote a healthy lifestyle for children and their families.

    How to Participate

    This program costs $10-$30 per month.

    Participating YMCA locations will accept children into the program based on a referral from a healthcare provider. The referral must indicate that your child’s body mass index (BMI) is in the 85th percentile or above for their age and gender.
