Start Up Good and Right (SUGAR) free program for kids

This fall, the Katz JCC’s nutritionist and certified fitness instructors are teaming up to empower children to make healthier food choices and learn new and exciting exercise options in a free program called S.U.G.A.R. (Start Up Good and Right). This program is open to kids in the community, grades 2-5, and aims to build healthy habits that take them into adulthood.

In the program’s four-week sessions, participants will experience four different 30-minute exercise classes, such as boot camp, boxing, yoga or cycling, followed by fun nutrition-centered activities and games. Kids will try new foods, snacks and recipes with some of the nutrition activities.

There is an upcoming trial class and information session on Wednesday, Sept. 26 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. There are two four-week sessions coming up this fall, also taking place on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 from Oct. 3-24 and Nov. 7-28.

Register online today by visiting katzjcc.org/youth-fitness.

This program was generously sponsored by the Horizon Foundation for New Jersey.
