Wellness and Weight Loss

Next 8 session program starts

Wednesday morning, October 11, 2023

Are you interested in....

  • Wellness strategies personally or professionally?
  • Weight loss or maintaining a healthy weight?
  • Learning simple lifestyle modifications to feel better?
  • Building immune system resilience?
  • Brain health for memory, anxiety, and brain fog?
  • Minimizing bone loss and muscle loss associated with agin?

Important keys to optimal health and aging are diet/nutrition and lifestyle. We don't need to accept that waking up stiff and achy, or forgetting what you were about to do, or that your clothing is getting tighter, is just part of aging!

With a minimum commitment of only 3 hours per month, each session is 90 minutes, you can start improving your wellness IQ to feel better, move better, think better, and sleep better.

By applying the model of our successful CDC-approved Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) plus our most popular continuing education courses for rehab professionals, these popular Wellness and Weight Loss classes include the most effective strategies and helpful information based on participant reviews. Our 2019-2020 DPP group of 10 participants lost a grand total of 207# including losses over holidays! All of our Wellness and Weight Loss groups lose weight (every program includes multiple holidays) and report many positive changes in sleep, pain, movement, energy, and more! Over 90% of participants complete this program and every group in every program has had weight loss and or improvements in wellness in 2021, 2022, and 2023.

Don't be surprised that shared wins and challenges are often the highlights of each class! Packed with actionable steps and information, every session will include pearls for optimal weight control, immune system response, brain health, and bone health. Plus basic education and support for autoimmune conditions, arthritis, and prediabetes are woven throughout the program.

Sessions also include videos, cooking tips, hints for shopping for healthy foods on a budget, scavenger hunts, recipes, and more! Support is provided between sessions too! Plus a special bonus: See the impact of different foods on blood sugar (glucose) using a continuous glucose monitor (CGM). 

Less than $25 per session!

Pre-registration for the entire program is required.

If this program is not a fit for you in the first month, you may request a full refund prior to the 3rd session.
