HPT started a Wellness program January 3, 2011 under the direction of Amy Hanshaw, HIT Center director. We had 9 participants to complete the first three months with a total weight loss of 180 lbs. Everyone participating in the program performed a Bod Pod, fitness test (pre and post) and was weighed in weekly by the HIT Center staff.
Everyone in the program considers this a lifestyle change, not a diet. We all have learned what we can and can’t eat to still continue to lose weight and become healthier. Several of the participants have set higher goals and are continuing to loss weight to get to a much healthier state in their life. The Wellness program is continuing in hopes of having other employees join in on the “lifestyle change” and become healthier along with everyone else.
