First Steps: Fit4Allkids

First Steps: Fit4Allkids is designed for families with children ages 7 to 11 years old who are struggling with their weight and have completed a physician screening. The program is fun and interactive. We encourage the whole family to participate because the program is most effective when kids have support and commitment from parents and siblings. We'll teach you how to help your child adopt healthy choices that help with weight management.

We currently offer First Steps: Fit4Allkids in cooperation with Healthy St. Petersburg at Campbell Park Recreation Center.

Special features include:

  • Six weeks working with a a team of specialists with experience in children's health, including a registered dietitian and fitness expert
  • Temporary membership to the YMCA
  • Compassionate and understanding staff
  • Peer support for parents and kids
  • Goal-setting and strategies

Families that need more intensive care due to special health needs or conditions may be better candidates for our one-on-one Healthy Steps Clinic. Our team can help determine which program is right for your family.
