Group Lifestyle Balance

Group Lifestyle Balance is a comprehensive, science based wellness program designed to provide tools, education, and support that equips individuals to take control of their health. During the program, you will track and learn about healthy eating and physical activity. You will also learn how to problem-solve and stay motivated.

Group Lifestyle Balance focuses on several areas that play a key role in your overall health and quality of life: activity and nutrition, for a stronger body; education, for a stronger mind and; emotional balance for a stronger spirit. An experienced multi-disciplinary team will provide education and support to ensure your personal success. Now is the time to take control of your health and live a healthier more fulfilling life. Group Lifestyle Balance is ready to share this journey with you!

Group Lifestyle Balance offers a positive change in lifestyle, where permanent weight loss and maintenance is a result of exercise and diet changes. By balancing food intake and exercise, you can work toward achieving your ideal weight. As a participant, you will spend time figuring out how you can increase your activity level and how to eat healthy for a lifetime.

However, education alone is not enough. In order to keep off excess weight in the long term, it is important that you make manageable changes that you will be able to continue for the rest of your life. You still need behavioral support to help change your behavior. Changing behavior is notoriously difficult and stumbling blocks often include encouragement. Weekly emails from the coach help to support the participants. The program works as a team because group participants are all coming together for the same reason. You’ll come to count on your fellow group members, and they will count on you. You’ll get individual feedback from your coach because no one will be facing exactly the same challenges as you. You and every member of the group will have ups and downs we share together, but by the time it is done, you will be having many more ups and the tools to quickly recover from the downs.

The program consists of fourteen core weekly sessions that transition into eight support sessions that meet every other week, each lead by a lifestyle coach. Most people who stay in the seven month program lose weight, lower their cholesterol, lower their blood pressure and improve blood sugar. The next program will meet from September 1, 2015- March 15, 2016 at 4pm at Wayne HealthCare. Class size is limited to 25 participants. The Group Lifestyle Balance program costs $250 ($11 per session). Throughout the program, participants will receive a binder with class materials, a Calorie King and Carbohydrate Counter book, a pedometer, and an exercise band.
