Learn core exercises to help strengthen your belly This exercise video series is part of the HealthWorks!, a family-based program at Cincinnati Children’s Heart Institute to help overweight kids and teens learn healthy habits.
HealthWorks! is one of the first of its kind and is the cornerstone of the pioneering Center for Better Health and Nutrition, a national role model in combating childhood obesity that treats more than 500 patients annually. HealthWorks! uses a variety of methods to help overweight children and teens – and their families – improve eating habits and become more physically active.
The program is designed to work with the lifestyle and needs of the young person and the immediate family, helping them to set realistic, achievable goals. In addition to promoting more physical activity, we emphasize making changes to the daily diet that include and promote healthier eating habits.
