Welcome to Weight Loss For Life! The YMCA of Metro Atlanta is proud to introduce our ground-breaking weight loss program that has been proven to offer longer-term results (success) than any of the dieting programs currently being marketed to the public.* Members must be currently enrolled in THE COACH APPROACH® before they are eligible to participate in this program.
To qualify for this program, members must have a BMI of 30 or higher and must be currently enrolled in THE COACH APPROACH®.
Weight Loss For Life is the next level to our signature exercise support program, THE COACH APPROACH®, which has improved physical activity, self-confidence and the emotional well-being of thousands of Y members around the country. With Weight Loss For Life, the next step is establishing wise, controlled eating, using behavioral tools that create long-term dietary change!
Weight Loss For Life is proven. We've tested our program for 9 years and have over 2 years of follow-up results that show both sustained weight loss and a reduction in health risks among our participants. On average, members lost over 16 pounds over the initial 6 months, and 82% of participants lost even more weight or maintained their weight loss beyond 2 years. As an added benefit to YMCA members, Weight Loss For Life is free to those who qualify!
Weight Loss For Life is certified by the National Institutes of Health's Research-tested Intervention Program.
