Nutrition and Wellness Services

Weight Management

We designed our weight management services to address the rising incidence of obesity—a condition that can lead to more serious conditions—in children, teens and young adults. Our goal is to provide young people with the right tools and nutritional information that will allow them to take an active role in managing their health—for today and in the future.

Each young person receives service designed specifically for their own individual needs that includes a complete physical exam and health evaluation; meeting with a registered dietician; goal setting; ongoing health care, nutritional education and supportive counseling.

Teen Fit

Teen Fit encourages young people to stay active and healthy with a number of exercise, workout and dance fitness classes. Classes take place in the Center’s gym and include training sessions that focus on improving strength, flexibility and aerobic capacity. Teen Fit also can customize workout plans for young people who are trying to overcome weight problems. As a component of this program, we combine nutritional education and counseling that supports the physical and emotional health and well-being of participants.

Teen Fit meets once a week at Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center and two days per week at the 92nd Street Y.
