Scale Back Alabama









Fresh Air Family has been providing the "move more" opportunity for Scale Back Alabama (SBA) since its inception 11 years ago. We get to do the fun part! Get out with us and get some easy exercise with friends, family, or join our group as an individual. You'll have fun, learn something, meet new people, and get plenty of Fresh Air! Scale Back is a free statewide weight-loss program designed to encourage Alabamians to get healthy and to have fun while doing it. Since the first competition in 2007, Alabamians have lost more than one million pounds!  

In partnership with Alabama Hospital Association and the Alabama Department of Public Health
