HEALTH NEWS: National weight loss program designed for groups

Updated: Wednesday, January 15 2014, 06:41 PM CST
If you are trying to get in shape this new year.. several fitness stores across the country are offering programs where you can sign up for a weight loss team -right in the store -and get weekly weigh in's right in the store.
   
Bridget Donovan made her mind up this year just to lose a few pounds, more for athletic performance than anything.

But as Rob Schwab a Physical Therapist knows it's easy to talk about it,, it's another thing trying to sit down and do it.

Which is why Bridgett is teaming up -- with a whole community --that to do the same thing.

She's signing up for Ton of Fun -- a national weight loss program coordinated by Fleet Feet Sports:

Stacey Dejulius  We are looking to give you the education you need as far as eating healthy, exercise, a lot o people have different schedules so we are looking to put together different workout teams, and then accountability is big.

It's so big you're invited in store for everything from weekly weigh-in's to fitness instruction.   You can also get additional training tips for workouts and injury prevention, as well as healthy menu's as part of weekly e-mails from an expert panel supporting a Ton of Fun.

You will have all your resources on line with those weekly e-mails.
The idea behind this Ton of Fun, is to lose a ton of weight, which if you have a ton of people isn't very much -the goal is to be accountable to the group,, which can help you not just lose a little -but keep it off too.

You see those who partner up with diet and exercise --tend to stay with it -- and as Brigdet Donofan knows - that's the secret to long term success definitely, definitely, you can't be slacking.

And even if you are she says -- slackers just need a little fun added into a fitness routine --maybe this year -- even a ton of it?
