Health & Wellness

A Lifetime of Healthy Habits are Made at the Y

Kids become physically stronger, have more endurance, and experience a sense of joy and fun through play by participating in YMCA Youth Fitness and Wellness Programs. They establish meaningful relationships and a supportive community of friends, which encourages a sustained commitment to health and fosters a sense of achievement and heightened self-confidence. Kids in YMCA Youth Fitness and Wellness Programs are in charge of their own physical fitness and well-being, and they know how to make healthy choices that last throughout a lifetime.

Our Health & Wellness programs change seasonally.

FIT-TASTIC KIdS, Ages 8-14

FIT-Tastic Kids, a program developed by the YMCA of the North Shore, teaches kids ages 8-14 how to eat a healthier diet and increase daily physical activity. In this FREE program, children learn how to make healthy food choices and will bring home recipes and fitness ideas to their families to continue healthy lifestyle habits at home. The goal is for both kids and their families to be FIT-Tastic together. FIT-Tastic Kids offers flexible scheduling for each family or individual to begin at any time, includes an 8-week Y youth membership thanks to the generosity of donors and grantors.
