A community-based program for teens focused on healthy lifestyles.
Fit4Allteens is a free, fun and interactive program designed for families with adolescents at an unhealthy weight or with rapid weight gain. We offer our 12-week community program in cooperation with the City of St. Petersburg Parks and Recreation at Campbell Park Recreation Center. This class is shortened to 8 weeks during the summer break.
We help families learn to make healthy lifestyle choices through hands-on education, fun fitness activities and technology. Participants can expect to use their smartphone and other tech devices.
