Fighting Childhood Obesity with a Youth Weight Loss Program

With the growing number of obese children, it’s more important than every to get overweight children involved in physical activities and nutrition. In response to Hampton Road’s need for a children’s health program, In Motion has developed a Youth Fitness Program designed to meet the unique needs of kids.

Our program encourages kids to be physically active every day and eat a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables and grains (while eliminating poor food choices) . The focus is on the benefits of proper nutrition and exercise for life, not the typical quick weight-loss program. We work to equip youth clients with the tools they need for life-long weight management. Other program highlights include:

  • Supervised Athletic Training –  Resistance training, cardiovascular training, and interactive games. Trainers also teach fun home exercise ideas to help kids achieve their recommended daily activity level.
  • Nutritional Guidance – A complete nutritional evaluation with a registered dietitian and a personalized eating plan based on your child’s  lifestyle, activities, nutritional needs, and food preferences.
  • Ongoing Support and Education – We work together with our clients and their parents/caregivers to establish healthy eating habits and attitudes toward food and exercise for a lifetime.

Our Staff
The staff involved in our youth fitness program are qualified fitness professionals and clinicians with a solid educational background. They work with all our Fitness Program participants’ parents to help them support and encourage their children through the program.
