The center will launch its Empowered to Lose BIG challenge starting Jan. 5.
The program, which is open to community members and non-members, offers weekly weigh-ins, e-newsletters with tips and advice and healthy eating tips from a nutritionist. Cost for this program is $10. Those who register by Dec. 22 will receive a free T-shirt.
Free how-to clinics will be held every other Wednesday starting on Jan. 16 with a 45-minute session on “Making Successful Changes.” Sessions are offered at 11:30 a.m. and 5:15 p.m.
Prizes will be awarded for the top men and women finishers in three separate categories: most pounds lost, most percent body weight lost and most “pound reward points.”
For an additional cost, participants can meet up to twice weekly with a certified instructor for 45-minute workout sessions. The classes, which are geared to people of all fitness levels, meet at 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursdays from Jan. 8 through March 14.
Cost for this 10-week series is $120 for premier members; $142 for basic members; $167 for Mason residents and $192 for non-residents.
