Weight Loss Programs

What are our Weight Loss Programs?

These 10-Week Weight Loss Programs will be held quarterly or every 3 months to help you stay in shape, grow on what you have learned, and maintain a lifestyle change in weight management. The Y’s Weight Loss Programs are geared to make weight loss easier in a group than going through it alone. Programs make the biggest difference when it comes to long-term success. Join us!

*Minimum Participants Required to Run is 20.

Real Participant Results and Testimonies!

  • Participants collectively in the Summer Slim Club Session lost 45.1 lbs and 11.1% body fat within the 10-week challenge!
  • “I am finding the challenge to be helpful in several ways. The first is accountability.  The short, weekly informative meetings are keeping me in check. Second, the information presented is useful and realistic. And lastly, the fact that I am working in a small group is very helpful. I have been involved with larger group meetings and even though they are welcoming, I still feel like an outsider. The small group encourages interaction with one another. You can share tips and tricks more easily sitting in as small group circle, rather than an auditorium type setting.” – Kim H.
  • I found the 10-week challenge to be helpful. It allowed me to focus on nutrition, exercise programs, and all-around health. I feel you did a great job explaining each session and were very open and accessible to us if we had questions.” – Mary B.
