Want to lose weight and get fit in 2022? Sign up for Beaufort Memorial’s Body Makeover Express, an eight-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 Jan. 24 at the Beaufort Memorial LifeFit Wellness Center.
“Losing weight isn’t easy, but the payoff for your health can be huge,” Beaufort Memorial Life Fit Wellness coach David Purser said in a release. “In order to help folks start the process, we created the Body Makeover Express program to provide the tools they need to take off the pounds — and keep them off. “
More than just a weight-loss program, Body Makeover Express is designed to help participants create life-long healthy eating and exercise habits that will put them on track to lose weight and get fit. The program includes small group exercise sessions with a wellness coach three times a week, as well as nutrition counseling with a registered dietician in order to create a sustainable nutrition plan that meets their specific needs.
The program’s small-group format provides the personal attention, accountability, structure and social support in order to help participants meet their goals.
“To establish a baseline and measure results, the program also includes a comprehensive body composition assessment and fitness test. All the tests are repeated at the end of the program to show how much you’ve improved,” said Purser, who has been working with the program for the past six years. “Participants also have access to an exclusive Facebook support group.”
Maybe most important, Body Makeover Express provides the opportunity for participants to build relationships with their coaches and others in the program, creating a community of health-minded individuals within LifeFit.
Body Makeover Express is appropriate for all ages and fitness levels. The cost of the program is $275.00 and registration closes Jan. 14. For more information or to sign up, contact David Purser at Charles.Purser@bmhsc.org or call the LifeFit Wellness Center at 843-522-5635.
