YMCA Weight Loss Program Registration Required



In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach facilitates a small group of up to 16 participants in learning about healthier eating, physical activity and other behavior changes over the course of 12 one-hour sessions. The program introduces participants to behaviors that have been shown to lead to sustained weight loss, and help participants develop those behaviors in ways that fit into their personal lifestyle. With the tools provided in the program, along with the knowledge and support of the group, participants develop their own nutrition and exercise plans that work for them.
