Curves of Freeport celebrates Women’s Health and Fitness Day
From press release
FREEPORT, Ill.More than half of adult U.S. women are overweight and more than one-third of adult U.S. women are obese, according to the American Obesity Association. In fact, obesity plays a major role in the poor health of women, including diabetes and high blood pressure. Such statistics can be alarming, and the increase in obesity is why places, like the local Curves center, have educational programs to address weight loss through focused curricula and classes.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a program that helps you reach your weight goal and stay there? In order to reach your weight goal, however, you have to retrain and sustain your metabolism,
says David Ylinen of the Freeport Curves. In recognition of National Women’s Health and Fitness Day on Sept. 30, the Curves location in Freeport is announcing its no-cost, 30-Day Diet Plan program for all Freeport-area women interested in weight-loss results and health improvement.
According to Ylinen, the 30-Day Diet Plan program is a series of free weight management classes. These classes are based on recent research findings from the Exercise & Sport Nutrition Laboratory at Texas A&M University. They teach Curves’ demonstrated method for raising metabolism and losing weight.
National Women’s Health and Fitness Day gives us an example to show women in our own community how easy it is to gain control of their weight,
We realize women in Freeport are thinking about going to other programs like Weight Watchers. That is why we invite them to take a look at our program, which is free to join and backed by a studied system.
Classes for the 30-Day Diet Plan program include:
1. Start-Up Class (90 minutes) and progression to Phase 2 for first-time participants.
2. Phase 3 (30 minutes) to teach the most important stage of the Curves Weight Management Plan and special techniques for ongoing weight maintenance.
3. Special Topics Classes (30 minutes) to cover a different health-related topic each month, including Smart Grocery Shopping, Choosing the Right Carbohydrates, Eating Out, Emotional Eating and more.
All classes are available at no fee, and no membership is required. The classes are administered by hands-on activities facilitated by weight management coaches from Curves of Freeport and DVDs that provide lessons by Curves’ Registered Dietitian Nadia Rodman. Participants are encouraged to make a weekly appointment to weigh in with their weight management coaches, who provide ongoing support and accountability.
We hope to show local women how they can benefit from these specialized classes,
and invite them to learn a brand-new way to lose weight and keep it offwithout counting points, calories or carbohydrates.
