 Fitness Pals (Not Currently Offered)

Metro has recognized the growing problems of increased screen time, inactivity and childhood obesity in our community, and we have developed a program to get kids active! In response to the statistics and guidelines that have been put forth by several government agencies, Metro has developed curriculum for fun, age-appropriate physical activities that incorporate education on healthy eating and life-style habits.
We use colors, shapes and numbers in coordination with physical activity to improve both mental cognition and physical abilities. Balance and agility exercises like hopping and weaving through obstacles are paired with sorting objects based on their shape color or category. These activities improve aerobic ability and hand-eye coordination.
Age-appropriate nutrition education is also an important component of the Fitness Pals program. Kids will learn about the food groups and what foods belong in each one. In addition to identifying the food groups, activities that include the daily servings of each are incorporated into the curriculum.
Fitness Pals is a program designed to meet or exceed the US Department of Health and Human Services Physical Activity Guidelines. Fun, interactive games focus on balance, motor skills, and hand-eye coordination, to promote muscle and bone strengthening and aerobic fitness. Our goal is to encourage healthy lifestyle habits at an early age in a fun, nurturing atmosphere that combines physical activity, mental acuity and social interaction.
In the US, 1 in 8 preschoolers are obese, and children who are overweight or obese as preschoolers are 5 times more likely to be overweight or obese as adults.
Establishing positive habits at an early age can ensure healthy development into adolescence and adulthood.
