In 2011, she launched “Hero Fit”, a program under the Wholesome Generation™ umbrella, in which families are partnered with a team of volunteers, community advocates, and healthy living experts. Over the course of three months, the experts, including the FerrignoFit family (HeroFit was Co-Founded by Shanna Ferrigno, Co-Founder of FERRIGNO FIT in LA), empowered the adopted families to lead healthier lives and become advocates and activists for healthy change in their community. The program was facilitated at the families’ homes to address the family culture and empower a healthy change in lifestyle for ALL family members and helped as field study to pilot how the change in Nutrition can change entire families and lifestyles.
By launching Hero Fit, Saint-Orens improved unhealthy diets and poor cooking habits regional and nation-wide and campaigns against the use of processed foods in schools, pre-schools, and the homes of her “Hero Fit” and “WG” families.
