Native Fitness & Nutrition

The Native FAN Program works to reduce health disparities in the American Indian community of the Twin Cities by reducing the prevalence of obesity and obesity-linked diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke. The program supports over a dozen physical activity and fitness activities each week including basketball, The Health and Wellness Coach works with individuals on their fitness goals.

Services:

  • Physical activities (free), including basketball, volleyball, walking groups, circuit training, yoga, traditional dancing, and several intensive workouts such as Insanity™.
  • Free assistance and coaching by Health and Wellness Coach to help set and meet health goals
  • Nutrition education and cooking classes to help people learn how to eat healthy to reduce risk for diabetes, heart disease and other health issues
  • Classes and activities to help people living with diabetes better manage their disease and stay healthy, including Living with Diabetes class, and monthly Diabetes Breakfast
  • Classes for people with pre-diabetes are offered once a year to help those at risk for developing Type II diabetes avoid and reverse the progression of this deadly disease.
  • Health screenings are offered on a quarterly basis so that community members can monitor their health risk and protective factors, such as weight status/BMI, percent of body fat, blood pressure, lung capacity, indicators of metabolic disorder, blood sugars, and occasionally lipid (cholesterol) testing is available.
  • Quarterly Pow-wows are offered at MAIC to provide a culturally supportive way to be physically active.
  • Health education workshops are offered to help community members stay current on health topics such as preventing colon cancer, commercial tobacco use, HIV/AIDS and Hep C.
  • Support groups are offered on a monthly basis for people living with cancer or other chronic diseases
