New Year, Healthy New You!

It’s a new year and people everywhere are resolving to get (and stay!) healthy. Have you struggled with maintaining a commitment to regular activity? Are you confused by conflicting information regarding sound nutrition and dietary habits? Can you envision 2016 being the year that you finally achieve your fitness and wellness goals once and for all? Stack the odds in your favor by partnering with GBMC!

GBMC is pleased to announce its new 12-week Life in Balance program, which is designed to provide education, support and results to help you look and feel your best in the new year. The Life in Balance program consists of three distinct components. First, you will meet with a certified health coach, who is also a nurse practitioner. The health coach works alongside your primary care physician or specialist, reviewing barriers to your success and assisting you with lifestyle issues such as stress, time management and family support. Next, a personal fitness coach will provide you with a complete fitness consultation and exercise plan, setting attainable goals tailored just for you. Throughout the program, the fitness coach will ensure proper form, address any questions and make adjustments to your exercise plan as needed. Finally, you will meet with a registered dietitian, who will counsel you on adopting healthy eating habits as well as calculating daily caloric needs and resting metabolic rates. You will also receive a customized meal plan including healthy and easy recipes and snacks.

These three certified professionals will collaborate in order to provide ongoing motivation, support and education to all program participants.

The Life in Balance program is open to anyone who has an interest in improving his or her health! It begins the week of February 1, 2016 and the complete program costs $750, or three easy payments of $250. Sign up in January and get a 10 percent discount! All meetings will be held at GBMC in the Geckle Diabetes and Nutrition Center. For additional information or to register, please visit our website at www.gbmc.org/lifeinbalance.
