Foothills Sports Medicine Physical Therapy in Southern Chandler has designed
a nonprofit, three-month program to combat childhood obesity, poor fitness
and the health problems associated with these conditions. It’s called the WiL
Power Challenge, and it’s free for 10- to 14-year-olds who have been identified as
needing these services. A kickoff for the next challenge will be held Sat., Sept. 19
for participants.
From Sept. 21 through Dec. 11, the WiL Power Challenge program includes
nutrition counseling, three supervised exercise sessions a week, daily diaries and
monthly weigh-ins. Under WiL Power Challenge Coordinator Jessica Luevano,
workouts are guided by strength and conditioning specialists and include before
and after tests for each participant. The winner is determined by the greatest
percent of inches lost, rather than comparative to other participants. Incentive
prizes are awarded along the way, and an overall winner receives $2,500 in
scholarship money.
Participants require a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or greater and must be
referred by their physician. Parents who feel their children would benefit from the
