Family Success with Strong Fast Fit

When healthy lifestyles are a family affair, youth are more successful. The program offers families fitness events, cooking and nutrition classes, and encourages regular use of family memberships to YWCA fitness facilities.

Participating families receive a YWCA Minneapolis health and fitness family membership!

Family support is essential for the success of the youth in this program. The whole family must commit to follow a healthy lifestyle, participate in program events and use the gym membership regularly during the program.

Strong Fast Fit Participants

  • Youth engage in moderate to high level physical activity at least two times per week for 30 minutes
  • Youth report making healthy food choices and an improved overall diet
  • Families increase their use of meal planning and healthy eating
