Bel Inizio, which means beautiful beginning in Italian, helps disadvantaged women build self-esteem and life skills through an 8-week fitness and nutrition education program. Our clients, in recovery from abuse and addiction, learn to make commitments and set goals and our team helps them achieve the accomplishment of completing their first 5K race. Join us in helping our women create a foundation for their future through Bel Inizio.
