ProActive Kids is thrilled to announce our newest location at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park, funded by Loyola University Health System.
ProActive Kids is thrilled to be working with LUHS and bringing the PAK program to Cook County!
The ProActive Kids program is much more than a simple diet or exercise program. It is a program to treat the whole child …physically, nutritionally and emotionally, built around the stability and commitment of family. During the 8-week session, the children and their families focus on three core areas: Fitness, Nutrition, and Lifestyle.
The program educates children and their families on fun and sustainable ways to improve their health through weekly physical exercises, lessons, assignments and discussions. Unlike other programs that focus on fitness and nutrition, ProActive Kids also incorporates psychological coaching. PAK engages the entire family to carry lessons throughout the child’s home environment to improve overall well-being. This holistic approach is crucial to the success of the participants.
ProActive Kids will have the maximum session size of 20 kids for the spring session taking place beginning April 7, 2014. F
This program is FREE to children ages 8-14 who are considered obese or at risk defined by being in the 85th percentile and above in BMI.
