Want to lose weight and get fit in 2017? Sign up for Beaufort Memorial’s Body Makeover, a 12-week comprehensive wellness program designed to give you the motivation and support you need to beat the odds and stick with your New Year’s resolution.

The next session begins Thursday, Jan. 12, at the Beaufort Memorial LifeFit Wellness Center.

More than just a weight-loss program, Body Makeover focuses on both exercise and nutrition to help you develop lifelong healthy habits. During the course of the program, LifeFit Wellness coaches will show you effective, scientifically-proven exercises to burn fat and build lean, long and strong muscles.

You’ll also work with a registered dietitian to create a sustainable nutrition plan that meets your specific needs. Nutrition education sessions will include three healthy cooking demos and a field trip to the supermarket.

The program’s small-group format provides the personal attention, accountability, structure and social support you’ll need to help you meet your goals. To keep participants motivated, the program also includes a little friendly competition.

Points will be awarded for attending classes and events, reducing inches, improving your fitness analysis score and keeping a food log, with prizes awarded to those who accumulate the most points.

Body Makeover is appropriate for all ages and fitness levels.

The cost of the program is $650. Registration closes Tuesday, Jan. 10.
