Wellness & Fitness Program
The Down Syndrome Association of Jacksonville is proud to once again offer you our Wellness & Fitness program in partnership with Weight Watchers! This 12-week program will be hosted at a new location- we will now be having our meetings at the Arc Jacksonville Village (3675 Kirbo Way, Jacksonville, 32244- neighborhood located behind the Target shopping center on Beach & Hodges) beginning Tuesday, January 24, 2017 from 3:45-5:00 pm. Ages 16 & Up.
This program has been specifically designed for those with developmental disabilities. Participants begin each week with an exercise/cardio segment, followed by weekly weigh-ins and then a 30-minute meeting led by an official Weight Watchers program leader. The program places heavy emphasis on the importance of exercise, nutrition, making healthy choices, eating a balanced diet and using portion control when eating. The program also implements the Weight Watchers point-approach to lose weight. All participants will also receive all of the benefits of the Weight Watchers program, such as receiving materials, e-Tools, and more.
–New! With our new location at the Arc Jacksonville Village, DSAJ Wellness & Fitness participants are now able to stay after meetings and have dinner at the Arc Jacksonville Village’s dining hall for $8.30. Bingo night is on Tuesday evenings beginning at 5:00 and the Village has been kind enough to extend the invitation to our Wellness & Fitness members as a chance to stay after meetings to socialize and make new friends!
For those with Down syndrome is $75.00.
For all other disabilities is $85.00.
Prices include all materials for the 12-week program. The DSAJ funds the remaining cost of the program for each individual!
