Features Health & Wellness Lighten UP 4 Life kick-off Saturday

Franklin Fitness demos at April kick-off.Free weight-loss challenge entirely web-based

The third kick-off for Lighten Up 4 Life for our community sponsored by Angel Medical Center will be on Saturday, Aug. 25, at 9 a.m. in the hospital dining room. The LU4L program is a free weight loss challenge that is entirely web-based.

The program is based on four-person teams who compete with others to lose the largest percentage of weight against the other teams. At the conclusion of the challenge, the top three teams who have lost the highest percentage of weight receive prizes. The teams who were the top winners during the first and second challenges all received Kindle Fires, and a three-month free membership to Franklin Fitness for their family.

“Having Lighten Up for Life become a program here in our community, gives our neighbors and friends the chance to take a few minutes during the week to ‘weigh-in’ and get the support they need to help in shedding unwanted pounds on-line.” stated James Bross, AMC CEO. “With no cost and a total online program, this is a healthy choice that makes getting healthy a lot easier for busy folks.”

The teams are encouraged with the information found on the website for the Lighten Up 4 Life teams which includes healthy recipes, exercise videos, and other weight loss advice. LU4L is an on-line program for four-man teams with each person weighing in and posting their own stats. No one else will see what your weight is or what you have lost. The results are posted as team percentages, not weight loss.

The kick-off and sign-up will take place on Saturday, Aug. 25, at 9 a.m., in the hospital dining room. Free door prizes and giveaways and lots of laughter will be part of the one-hour kick-off.
