Trinity Hospital Twin City is welcoming registrations from community members who would like to learn how to make healthy lifestyle changes through Fit for Life classes. Registration is taking place through Tuesday, Aug. 27 or until the class session is full.

Fit for Life classes will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 3 in the hospital’s first-floor St. Francis Conference Center, 819 N. First St., Dennison.

Fit for Life is a 12-week session of classes that meets weekly for less than an hour and a half, and classes will meet on Tuesdays from 5:30-7 p.m.

The Fit for Life classes consist of nutrition and fitness information with a focus on behavioral change. Some of the topics during the 12-week session include The Wellness Choice, Nutrition & Your Health, Eat to Live, Flexibility Fitness, Stress Management and Disease Prevention & Healthy Aging.

Participants will receive a hands-on learning experience that includes learning to read food labels, viewing and understanding correct portion sizes, holding a replica of 5 pounds of fat and more.

Dr. Timothy McKnight, board-certified family physician and project director of Trinity Hospital Twin City’s Fit for Life program, is the primary instructor throughout the class session, which is supplemented with professional guest speakers including coach Dick Hartzell, founder of JumpStretch Inc.; Dr. Mike Jakubowski, chiropractor at Twin City Chiropractic; and other members of the Fit for Life team.

Registration for Fit for Life is open to adults of all ages. The cost to join Fit for Life is $79 per person (less than $7 a week) and covers blood work to be completed before and after the class and a course book.

To register for the Fit for Life session that begins on Sept. 3 or for more information, call 740-922-7450 ext. 2181.

Over 2,000 community residents have completed Fit for Life over the past 12 years. Many participants who have completed the program have lost weight; lowered their blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels; and reduced or eliminated medications.
