Go Girls! Fitness Support Group

In collaboration with the Children's Fitness Clinic, we developed Go Girls!, a dance-based fitness support group for girls ages 7-21.  Our program is meant to:

  • Introduce girls to exercise in a fun environment where they can meet other girls and support each other.
  • Enable girls to discover and develop enjoyment of exercise.
  • Educate girls and their families about weight-related health issues and reproductive health issues.
  • Help girls and their families implement healthy lifestyle changes.

We currently have a weekly class on Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in Orange:

  • UVA's Orange Pediatrics, 661 University Lane, Suite A, Orange, VA.
NEW LOCATION at UVA Primary and Specialty Care Zion Crossroads beginning Monday September 11, 2017
  • Class will be held at this location from 9/11/17 - 10/16/17 from 5:45 - 6:45 p.m.
Classes at the Battle Building will resume in October, please see the calendar for additional details.

The classes include 45 minutes of  Zumba and 15 minutes of wellness discussion led by a wide range of health and wellness professionals.  We invite moms, aunts, grandmas, neighbors, and other support persons to join our class and participate with the girls!  Our weekly class will be moving to other locations in time.  Please check back to see if a class has been added near you; or let us know if you'd like to bring Go Girls! to your community.
