Due to the popularity of Step Up and Scale Down, we have added a second class series. This time we will be meeting in Groesbeck at the Limestone Medical Center, in the boardroom.
Classes meet on Thursdays, 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm, beginning on February 13th. Class will continue for 12 weeks.
The program consists of weekly lessons to help participants move toward a healthier weight and includes a weekly weight check-in. “Step Up & Scale Down is a researched-based program that has proven success in weight management and building healthy lifestyle habits,” Vanessa Casad said.
