Wheat Ridge, CO (PRWEB) September 22, 2011
Wellness Now, a non-profit wellness program in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, knows that making a lifestyle change can be difficult. That’s why it is launching a new family health initiative developed to bring professional support straight to the door-step. Families in need of a health-related makeover are invited to submit an application.
Popular television celebrities like Jamie Oliver (Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution) and Chris Powell (Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition) take individuals and families through transformational makeovers. This is a chance for local Wheat Ridge, Colorado families to be a part of a similar success story. The eight-week makeover will involve:
- Meetings with a Health Coach and a Life Coach to identify areas for improvement for each individual and the family as a whole;
- Free health screenings including blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol for all family members;
- Plans for diet and exercise for each family member;
- Opening your home to a ‘search and destroy’ mission for food items that are sabotaging your healthy lifestyle;
- Guidance toward healthier food and activity choices;
- Meeting with a dietician to learn about dietary needs and portion control;
- Weekly check-ins to help you stay on track;
- Incentives as you reach your milestones
Nominate a family by applying online at http://www.wellnessnowjcmh.org or calling 303-423-2261. Describe in 200 words or less why the interested family is ready, willing and able to participate in this makeover. Each submission will be private and confidential.
