The UW Health Pediatric Fitness Clinic helps children and teens between the ages of 5-18 who have concerns about their health, fitness or weight gain. Working with the entire family, we will look at exercise habits, diet and family health history to put together a plan for making healthier lifestyle choices.
The first appointment includes:
A health exam to evaluate medical status
Body composition scan, to measure a child's muscle, bone and fat
Exercise to track fitness levels and set goals
Nutrition consult to review diet and set healthy balanced eating goals.
After a plan is given, follow up visits are coordinated by our care team, the patient and their family. Depending on the care plan, return visits may be scheduled every 1-2 months to monitor progress closely and review goals, or every 6-12 months for program maintenance and fitness testing.
After school exercise program
Clinic patients are encouraged to join the after school monitored exercise program that is held at the sports medicine exercise lab or indoor pool. Individualized exercise programs are give to each child with group activities held at the end of each session.
