Kohl's Future Fitness Club sessions are coming to the greater Akron area

01-07-2013

The Kohl’s Future Fitness Club, presented by Akron Children’s Hospital, in partnership with Kohl’s Department stores, has announced new sessions in the greater Akron area to promote healthy living to kids and education for their parents.

According to The Kaiser Family Foundation, 33.3 percent of children in Ohio are overweight or obese – 1.7 percent higher than the national average. The Kohl’s Future Fitness Club helps reverse the rising obesity trend, and give Ohio children longer and healthier lives.

The program is designed for children ages 8 to 13 and educates them about fitness, healthy eating habits and safe weight loss. Participants engage in noncompetitive activities such as obstacle courses, rope jumping, relays, games and circuit training, while receiving the foundation they need to be active for the rest of their lives.
