Play Fit - Stay Fit Programs

Exercise Component

The Play Fit-Stay Fit! fitness component is geared toward alleviating the late effects of cancer.

Each child is evaluated by an experienced physical therapist and then integrated into a physical activity group with children of similar age and physical activity status. A smaller class size allows each child plenty of individualized attention.

The fitness program is structured in three progressive phases that are tailored to each

child’s individual needs and progress:

  • General conditioning
  • Strength and endurance
  • Power, agility, and sport-specific skills

Nutritional/Counseling Component

Group counseling for children:

  • Healthy eating habits
  • Sound nutrition
  • Psychological and social issues

Group counseling for parents:

  • Meet other families who share similar experiences
  • Acquire information and education to help make the best health decisions for your child
  • Gain social support
