Lakeland Offers Fitness & Lifestyle Improvement Plan - Archived
(ST. JOSEPH) – With the right tools, weight loss, improved health, and increased energy can be achieved and maintained for a lifetime. The Fitness and Lifestyle Improvement Plan (FLIP) is a comprehensive eight-week program that combines the three essential components for permanent weight loss: nutrition education, behavior modification, and exercise.

FLIP is led by experienced experts in the field of weight management. The program cost is $250 and includes:
  • A two-month fitness membership
  • Pre- and post-program assessment of weight, body composition, girth measurement, blood pressure, and cardiovascular fitness
  • Individualized exercise prescription and meal plans that promote maximum body fat loss
  • Weekly interactive nutrition classes
  • Proven techniques for fostering a healthy relationship with food
  • Progress reports sent to your physician
FLIP developer and Lakeland Registered Dietitian Pam Kurtz emphasizes that the classes encourage an ongoing, healthier lifestyle, not just weight loss.

“More than 80% of what is stopping us from becoming healthy is mental,” said Kurtz. “In class we work on changing the way we think about food by experiencing hands-on strategies that address emotional eating, triggers for overeating, mindful eating, and other topics. We learn new ways to respond that become contagious and empowering.”
Wednesdays, June 4 to July 23
5:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Center for Outpatient Services, St. Joseph
Pharmacy Conference Room
3900 Hollywood Road, St. Joseph

Space in FLIP is limited, and preregistration is required. For more information or to register, please call (269) 556-7171.
