The WiL Power Challenge was developed to help combat the growing incidence of childhood obesity. By educating children and their parents on the variety of ways to live healthier and more active lifestyles and providing the necessary tools to execute change, we are able to positively impact individuals struggling with weight and health issues and decrease the prevalence of depression, low self-esteem and inactivity.
Since its inception, the WiL Power Challenge has benefited over 350 families and has shown tremendous body composition changes, increases in self-esteem and increases in nutrition and fitness knowledge of our participants and parents. Our program has demonstrated the benefits of leading a fit and healthy life style.
Participants are identified by physicians across the valley and referred into this free twenty week program. During the twenty weeks of their participation they work out with our strength coaches, take nutrition education classes from our dietitians and get the opportunity to attend doctor presentations, cooking classes and weekend workouts.
Nathan Shaw has not only been involved in motivating the kids and parents for the weekend workouts, he has been an intragal part in obtaining donations and support across the community. Nathan has also served as our keynote speaker on a number of occasions and his involvement is vital to the continued success of the program.
Thank you Nathan for your continued support and involvement in the WiL Power Challenge.
