Give Yourself a G.I.F.T. This Holiday Season


Get Into Fitness Together (G.I.F.T.) ia a free program offered to the community and made possible through BayCare’s partnership with the Florida State Department of Health.  GIFT was developed by registered dietitians, nurses and health educators, and uses science-based information to reduce chronic diseases through obesity prevention.  GIFT emphasizes improving your nutrition and increasing physical activity in your daily life, both of which help facilitate weight reduction.


During this 12-week program, teachers provide you educational information and health tools to support your goals.  Additionally, wellness incentives including water bottles, pedometers and more are included throughout the program. The first six weeks focus on nutrition, food portioning and labels, while the second six weeks focus on maintenance, fitness and preventing health disease.


Tuesdays from 6-7pm, January 21 – April 7
