GOAL (Get Onboard Active Living)

GOAL provides families with education and support on nutrition, physical activity and behavioral habits in order to make positive, sustainable changes for an active and healthy lifestyle. All programs offered through GOAL are free – made possible by a unique partnership unlike any other program offered in Indiana.

Families participate in an 8-week interactive program led by physical activity specialists, registered dietitians, and health coaches that incorporates SMART goals, hands-on activities, and group support. Families will learn and practice habits surrounding normalized eating behaviors, fun physical activity, gaining confidence to try new foods and activities, developing positive body image and self-esteem, meal planning, cooking lessons – and more!

Sessions meet on Tuesday evenings from 5–7 pm with start dates in January, May and September. Children must be between 6 – 18 years old to participate. A preliminary evaluation by a registered dietitian will be required prior to enrollment; cost of this session will be covered by the program.

GOAL Training

GOAL Training is a program that pairs your child with an IU student studying in the Fitness and Wellness degree program to help them become more active. The program meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 – 7:30 pm and has start dates in the spring and fall each year. Children must be between the ages of 6 – 18 years old to participate and are motivated to be more active, but need help building the skills or confidence to be more active.
