Weight gain is common during the holidays, and even a few pounds can have a negative health impact, especially if you gain a few MORE pounds every time the holidays roll around. This year, get an early start on your New Years' resolutions and join Get Fit Festus to Beat the Holiday Bulge!
It's as simple as . . .
- Register for Beat the Holiday Bulge (BHB) at Jefferson Regional Medical Center (Nov. 3rd and 4th) or the Jefferson County Family YMCA (Nov. 5th and 6th).
- Join others to stay active with a walking group on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm, yoga on Tuesday evenings, or kickboxing on Thursday evenings**.
- Use the START! tool to track your activity and eating -- free for all BHB participants.
- Visit this website for health eating and activity tips and ideas throughout November and December.
Participants who maintain their weight within one pound, or lose weight, during Beat the Holiday Bulge will receive a t-shirt and be entered to win the new American Heart Association cookbook as well as other great prizes.
**The walking group is free. There is a small fee to attend the yoga and kickboxing classes -- we will post times and locations for these classes soon -- keep an eye on our calendar on the right.
