OSF Center for Health Fitness offers ‘LEARN’ Program for Weight Management
From press release
To help people master new skills that will result in permanent lifestyle changes, the OSF St. Anthony Center for Health Fitness offers the LEARN Program for Weight Management. The LEARN Program does not offer the typical
approach to weight loss. Instead, the program focuses on five key elements: Lifestyles, Exercise, Attitudes, Relationships and Nutrition.
Classes for the 12-week program begin at 9 a.m., Wednesday, Jan. 20, at the OSF Center for Health Fitness, 5510 E. State St., Rockford.
The program includes 12 weekly group meetings facilitated by an OSF registered dietitian and exercise specialist. The participants weigh in, learn from health professionals and each other, and help keep each other motivated.
The most scientifically tested and widely used weight loss manual in the world, The LEARN Program for Weight Management by Kelly D. Brownell, Ph.D., will be given to each participant. Class members will also be given a Step Counter to help measure and improve physical activity.
Two body composition assessments are offered during the program to help measure participants’ success. Members also receive the free use of the OSF Fitness Center for the 12 weeks of the program.
The fees are $199 for current OSF Health Fitness Center members or $249 for non-members. Call (815) 395-4563 for more information and reservations.
