Colorado Weigh classes coming to Boulder, Denver, Colorado Springs

CU research guides weight-loss program, offered at discount to faculty, staff
By Staff

January is the time for New Year's resolutions, and for many people, their top resolution is to lose weight.  To help more people be successful, Be Colorado is bringing the popular Colorado Weigh program to the Boulder, Denver and Colorado Springs campuses with subsidized Phase 1 classes starting in February.

The 12-week weight loss and long-term maintenance program, taught by registered dietitians, puts into practice the world-renowned research by faculty at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in the area of obesity treatment.

In 2011, Be Colorado sponsored and subsidized three Phase 1 Colorado Weigh classes on the Anschutz Medical Campus. The class participants had an average 5.7 percent weight loss over the 12 weeks. Not only did participants lose weight, but they also enjoyed the classes, giving them a rating of 4.7, with 5 being excellent.

These Colorado Weigh classes are open to all University of Colorado faculty and staff.  The cost for the Phase 1 class is $240, a substantial discount from the regular price of $349, and is paid through payroll deduction. In addition, University of Colorado Health and Welfare Trust members can receive a $100 rebate for meeting attendance and logging goals.
