It has been estimated by the local department of health in Washington D.C. that over 40 percent of children are overweight or obese in the United States. This is the highest rate of childhood obesity ever in the United States. Why are youth obesity rates rapidly increasing? They are not being taught how to make the right lifestyle choices.
Streamline Fitness Training has developed the I.M.P.A.C.T. program to help decrease obesity in youth as well as encourage health, wellness, and prevention in non-obese and non-overweight youth. Through our program, our trainers help educate youths and their parents on the importance of living healthier lifestyles. Participants learn to become more active, incorporate better eating habits and enjoy a healthier, fit lifestyle.
I.M.P.A.C.T runs over a 9-week time period that is scheduled and customized to fit your school's curriculum. The first half of the 9 weeks is dedicated to the students. Multiple teaching methods are used to engage the students in learning about fitness and nutrition with focus on:

I.M.P.A.C.T. intends to motivate children and their families to get the necessary exercise and practice good eating habits to live healthier lifestyles. Contact us today to see how I.M.P.A.C.T. can be weaved into your school's curriculum today!
