Get FIT is a 12-week fitness, weight loss and behavior change program run by the experts at FIT.  The goal of Get FIT is to help participants improve their fitness, lose body fat and implement health behavior changes that can be maintained for a lifetime. The workouts are a balanced mix between cardiovascular and resistance training, the goal being to maximize weight loss from fat and improve daily functioning.

Get FIT will be virtual and in-person this Fall!

Get FIT consists of Start FIT, Get FIT I, and Get FIT II.  Most individuals start in Get FIT I.  Start FIT is designed for those with physical limitations, who are brand new to exercise, or prefer to work in a smaller group. Start FIT classes are no more than 6 people. Get FIT II is designed for those who have graduated from Get FIT I or are already physically active.  The FIT staff will help you determine if Start FIT, Get FIT I, Get FIT II is right for you. Not all levels of Get FIT may be offered.
