Fit 4 LIFE

Fit 4 LIFE is a weekly fitness and wellness program which encourages exercise and healthy eating habits.  While individuals with DD are more likely to be obese, to have diabetes and high blood pressure they engage in exercise and other healthy behaviors less frequently than individuals without disabilities.  Exercise and activity are critically important to offset the weight gain that is partially attributable to the many medications that many adults with DD must take.
