Free Weight Management Workshop with Dr. Rose
Dr. Rose is a Board Certified Pediatrician and Certified Youth Fitness Specialist. His program at the Riverdale Y utilizes his unique skill set to help children and adolescents (from the ages of 5 to 19) with excess weight and sedentary activities.
Evidence-based research has demonstrated that many of these youth lack feelings of competence in their fundamental athletic skills. Therefore, they often shy away from comparative physical activities and drift toward the attractive sedentary activities availability in the new “digital world” where they feel “safe.”
Dr. Rose works with these youths through expert nutritional, fitness, and weight management instructions to enhance their feelings of competence in their basic athletic skills and body composition. With this newfound confidence, they are more likely to participate in physical activities that promote their long term health and well-being.
