The Salt River Diabetes Program is hosting its annual Fit Rez Kids summer fitness program for youth ages 7 to 13. The program started on June 16 and runs through the month of July at the Salt River Fitness Center.

The program is open to enrolled SRPMIC members and their family, as well as individuals residing within SRPMIC. The kids participate in a variety of activities, such as circuit training, Zumba Kids, Tabata training, cross-training and yoga.

This summer the classes are meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays for seven weeks. Tuesday’s class is for youth ages 11-13 and the Thursday class is for children ages 7-10.
“The goal of the program is to provide safe and fun activities indoors. I hope the classes will motivate the youth to stay active and let them know that there are alternative activities away from sports that can be fun and exercises which can be helpful in the sport they participating in as well,” said SRPMIC Physical Fitness Specialist and Fit Rez Kids instructor Rachel Seepie.
