Learn more about our Brenner FIT Academy and how it can help your family.

What is Brenner FIT® Academy: For Families?

The Brenner FIT Academy: For Families is a less intensive version of Brenner FIT. This program was created by the Brenner FIT team at Brenner Children’s and is supported by a grant with Kohl's Cares. Classes are led by a Brenner FIT-trained Family Support Specialist. In this program, we guide your family toward lifestyle changes without using restrictive diets or exercise prescriptions.

How do we become a Brenner FIT Academy family?

No referral is necessary. If you are concerned about your child’s weight or health (ages 2 to 18), your family may join the program.
