Operation Weight Loss with the YMCA

*Note: This is some shameless self-promotion by me (Cortney – SLVC Graduate Assistant). As an advocate for better health and a YMCA devotee, I strongly encourage you to jump on board. It’s going to be a great program!*

Looking for a healthy way to lose weight and get into shape? Join the Stillwater Family YMCA’s Operation Weight Loss program.

Participants in the program will have the opportunity to  join exercise teams, win prizes by reaching monthly goals, receive nutritional advice from experts and network with others interested in getting into shape. A free T-shirt is included.

Operation Weight Loss is February through May. YMCA members may join for $30 and non-members for $40. Sign-ups will be open until the kick-off on Thursday, January 28, at 6:30 p.m. at the YMCA, 204 S. Duck.

At the kick-off, participants will immediately sign-up for the teams whose work-out schedules work best for them (i.e. Monday team, Tuesday team, etc.). Teams will meet each week to see how the adjustment to a healthier lifestyle is going and to actually work-out (surprise!). All participants will meet monthly for guidance from local nutritionists.

To register, go here. Still have questions? Shoot me an e-mail at cortney.k.hicks@okstate.edu or call the YMCA at 405-372-5833. I’d love to hear from you!
