Franciscan Health’s free FIT-Together program, a family-centered approach to health and wellness, is back and open for registration.

The unique, six-week fitness program is intended for households with children between the ages of 7 and 13. FIT-Together addresses the well-being of every participating family member, including children, siblings, parents and parental figures.

The program includes a free six-week family membership to the Y, family fitness activities, family nutrition education, hands-on cooking demos, budget-friendly healthy recipes and tastings, meal kits for recreating recipes at home, family mindfulness and resilience strategies, giveaways and more.

FIT-Together takes place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays from April 2 through May 7 at the Hammond Family YMCA, 7322 Southeastern Ave.

The program is made possible in part by a partnership between Franciscan Health, the Crossroads YMCA and the Purdue University Extension – Nutrition Education Program.

Registration is required and is available online. Please contact Franciscan Health Community Health Improvement Coordinator Stacy Zembala at or (219) 227-4564 for more information.
