The Get FIT (Families in Training) program is a preventive program aimed at averting Type II diabetes, obesity, and sedentary lifestyles for school-aged children and their families.

The program is offered throughout the academic year at various school districts, and in the summer as a one-month youth summer camp. Get FIT integrates nutrition, physical fitness, and character education to not only support the physical needs of students and their families but also facilitate the healing of the mind, body, and spirit.

Get FIT's goal is to transform the lives of people in medically underserved, rural communities. The program focuses on actively engaging community members and stakeholders in the planning, designing, and delivery of services and programs that meet the unmet needs of their community.

Get FIT is currently offered in Batesville, Cotulla, San Antonio, Santa Rosa, and Uvalde. Enrollment is free and open year-round on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in bringing Get FIT to your school or finding a program near you, call the Get FIT manager at 1-800-959-6673.

We combat the issues of childhood obesity and physical inactivity by helping youth develop healthy lifestyles through free nutrition education, wholesome snacks, and necessary sustenance each day. Through daily exercise we promote moderate to vigorous physical activity. In addition, SA Youth promotes healthy living by advising against the use of negative behaviors such as smoking, consuming alcohol, and abusing drugs.

COMPREHENSIVE NUTRITION:

One in four children in San Antonio suffers from food insecurity and hunger. We serve our youth with a healthy snack upon arriving at our centers after they finish the school day. Children who remain through dinner are also served a nutritious meal. Throughout the summer months, children are served a healthy breakfast along with a nutritious lunch. Our program provides wholesome sustenance and well-planned menu options designed by a Nutrition Coordinator at our site locations.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION:

SA Fit! provides our youth with hands-on, creative, and fun activities that are moderate to vigorous physical activities. Each day our youth engage in at least 60 minutes of structured physical activities at our site locations. Using GeoMotion and SPARK (Sports, Play, and Active Recreation for Kids) our youth are equipped with the tools to make healthy lifestyle choices. We also offer specialized physical fitness programs in:

  • Dance
  • Swimming
  • Cheerleading and tumbling
  • Rock-climbing
