A new program is opening up in Richmond – with 11 years of expertise – FIT Richmond’s “FIT Challenge 2013″ hopes to help you change your mind and you body, learning skills that will make impacts on your lifestyle.
“It’s a much different approach than most other companies.” Said FIT Challenge’s organizer Julia Bardrof. “It’s for people struggling with their weight and their body type. To get a good handle on nutrition, learning habits of eating well and working out hard – it’s not for someone who already works out 5-days-a-week.”
Bardrof was excited to develop this program, because one of the keys to the program is the individual. “Not everybody is going to want to lose 50 lbs – it could be body fat percentage, a healthier lifestyle – programs will be individualized.”
Using a mix of nutrition classes and behavior modification, Bardrof will provide a “gambit” of options to create a holistic program instead of just coming in and working out and leaving.
The FIT Challenge will integrate group and partner challenges each week as well – creating a sense of accountability that Bardrof says is key to any lifestyle change. “It’s about keeping people accountable and motivated as opposed to just going to classes and not reaching goals.”
But Bardrof admits, like any weight loss program, there are challenges. “Making time is always what people struggle with – time management… but we work on those skills and we help you make plans.”
Additionally, we here at GayRVA are excited to partner with FIT Richmond to give away 1 membership to the 2013 FIT Challenge! Follow the widget below and be entered into our drawing for your chance to win!
