The Bolger Fitness Center (BFC), a program of the Ridgewood YMCA and YWCA Bergen County, will kick off its next two month "Be the Winner" program on January 28, 2013. This comprehensive program provides the fitness instruction, nutrition strategies and community support needed for healthy and successful weight-loss. Since "Be the Winner" was launched in 2010, 35 participants have lost a total of 288 pounds.

All participants will meet on Monday, January 28 for weigh-ins and a group session with a Registered Dietician. The program features eight 30 minute sessions with a certified personal trainer; sixteen 60-minute group exercise classes during weeknights with fellow participants; a follow-up group session with the Registered Dietician and ongoing health and wellness support via email; plus access to over 70 free fitness classes, strength and conditioning gym and lap swimming. The winner (determined by largest percentage of body weight lost at the end of the program) receives a healthy gift basket and choice of a 3-month BFC membership; three one-hour personal training sessions; or three one-hour massages.

The cost is $399 for BFC members and $499 for non-members (includes BFC membership for program duration.) Upgrade to 60-minute Personal Training sessions for only $99; 1-on-1 nutrition consultations are available for an additional $95 each ($150 value) or two participants can do a group session for $50 each.
