Healthy Lifestyles

HEALTHY LIFESTYLES
Our vision is to empower youth to make healthful choices. Our "Triple Play" program emphasizes good nutrition, regular physical activity, and improving overall well-being.
Healthy Habits
Once a week, members learn about different health and nutrition concepts and enjoy creating healthy snacks in the kitchen. Afterward, members participate in a fitness activity outside that demonstrates the importance of daily exercise.

Triple Play
Triple Play is a research-based health and wellness program in which every member is encouraged to participate in 90 minutes of vigorous physical activity every day. This health and wellness program increases the overall health of Club members ages 6-18 by increasing their daily physical activity, teaching them good nutrition and helping them develop healthy relationships. We offer 90 minutes of vigorous physical activity each day and encourage all children to participate, especially those who don't generally consider themselves athletic or skilled at games and sports. We create an environment that is emotionally supportive so that everyone feels encouraged to participate at their own level.

Smart Girls
Smart Girls is a program created by Boys & Girls Clubs of America that promotes healthy lifestyles and self-esteem enhancement for girls.

Daily Fitness Program
Kids participate in a daily fitness challenge that teaches skills in a particular area of physical fitness. Monday focuses on flexibility activities such as stretching and yoga. Tuesday's focus is on high-energy endurance activities such as running and relay races. On Wednesday members learn strength and group sports skills.

Wii & Kinect Fitness
Kids participate in vigorous physical activity by learning how to dance to a choreographed music video using eye and body coordination.

Positive Sprouts Garden
The Club King program was selected as one of the local clubs by the Boys & Girls Club of America to participate in the creation of a community garden through a partnership with Amway. Through this garden, the Club aimed to teach the importance of including fruits and vegetables in the members’ diet. The members help care for the garden weekly and enjoy creating recipes from the materials they harvest.
