Wellness & Fitness Program

The Down Syndrome Association of Jacksonville is proud to once again offer you our Wellness & Fitness program in partnership with Weight Watchers! This 12-week program will be hosted at the Arc Jacksonville Village (3675 Kirbo Way, Jacksonville, 32244- neighborhood located behind the Target shopping center on Beach & Hodges) beginning Wednesday, January 17, 2018 from 3:45-5:15 pm.  Ages 16 & Up.

This program has been specifically designed for those with developmental disabilities. Participants begin each week with an exercise/cardio segment, followed by weekly weigh-ins and then a 30-minute meeting led by an official Weight Watchers program leader. The program places heavy emphasis on the importance of exercise, nutrition, making healthy choices, eating a balanced diet and using portion control when eating.  The program also implements the Weight Watchers point-approach to lose weight. All participants will also receive all of the benefits of the Weight Watchers program, such as receiving materials, e-Tools, and more.


For those with Down syndrome is $75.00.
For all other disabilities is $85.00.

Prices include all materials for the 12-week program. The DSAJ funds the remaining cost of the program for each individual!
