Weigh to Health Classes to Begin January 4
Anyone looking to lose weight and learn a healthier lifestyle is encouraged to enroll in the upcoming Weigh to Health classes at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center.
The classes will be taught every Tuesday in the hospital’s Northwest Plaza Classroom #6 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. for 12 weeks starting January 4, 2011. Taught by a registered dietitian, this educational course focuses on weight loss and healthy lifestyles that will help participants fight the battle against obesity. During the classes, participants will develop personal goals using eating style and exercise assessment tools, learn to manage nutrition, activity and behavior, and track intake and exercise. Guest speakers will also visit the classes including an exercise specialist and chef.
Cost for the course is $225, which includes 12 months of follow-up classes after the initial 12-week course. Due to limited space, pre-registration is required prior to beginning the classes. Monthly payments can be arranged at time of registration. Please call 801.357.8143 to register.
For SelectHealth members, partial reimbursement of the registration cost is available if a participant meets SelectHealth criteria. To be eligible for reimbursement, you must attend and participate in the program and make at least one lifestyle change by the end of six months.
