Lose Inches, Gain Energy.Joju's results...Paul's results...Organizational perspective:“Well Today provided a 12-week workshop called "Healthy Weight: Lose Inches and Gain Energy" for employees. The facilitator’s energy and enthusiasm created an outstanding group dynamic and a supportive environment for goal setting and individual progress. What really stood out were the outcomes - individuals lost an average of 11 pounds and lowered their resting heart rates an average of 9 beats per minute. I understand from a George Washington University study that this means they have lowered their risk of having a heart attack or developing heart disease...priceless! Another measure of success is that participants signed up for a follow-up series together.” Susan Fuszard Employee Assistance Consultant WI Dept. of TransportationWorkshop descriptionHealthy Weight: Lose Inches, Gain Energy(12 week, 60 minutes per week)A lively and highly-interactive workshop to create and support new healthy behaviors with a focus on weight loss.
