New Weight Loss and Weight Maintenance Program
New Program to begin at Crow Community Center this November
Are you ready for a change? The Crow Community Center, located at 211 Richview Road, is set to begin a brand new program to encourage healthy lifestyles in the community. This program, intended to help with weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight, is based on the PILI Ohana Program which focuses on weight control, behavior change, social systems, and lifestyle.
This six-month program features an initial “weight loss phase” that lasts three months, followed by a three month “weight loss maintenance phase.” Additionally, participants will take part in three assessments, a baseline assessment to begin, followed by a monthly assessment of progress during the weight loss phase. Space allows for 20 participants, so head on over to recpro.cityofclarksville.com to reserve your spot today!
