Be Colorado is bringing the very popular Colorado Weigh program to the Boulder, Denver and Colorado Springs campuses with a subsidized Phase 1 class starting this month. The Boulder class is now full, but there is still space in the Denver and Colorado Springs classes.
These classes are intended for faculty and staff who have at least 5 percent to 10 percent of their starting weight to lose in order to achieve a healthy BMI of less than 25. If you would like to calculate your BMI, you can do so by going to http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi .
Here are the upcoming class details:
* - No class during Spring Break
Colorado Weigh is a 12-week weight loss and long-term maintenance program, taught by registered dietitians. It puts into practice the world-renowned research done at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in the area of obesity treatment. The class is open to all University of Colorado faculty and staff.
The cost for the Phase 1 class is $240 for University of Colorado Health and Welfare Trust plan participants and $295 for all others. This is a substantial discount from the regular price of $349. In addition, Trust plan participants can receive a $100 rebate for meeting attendance and logging goals. Trust plans include UANet, Lumenos, HMO Colorado, Medicare Primary and Kaiser (exempt employees only). The class will be paid through payroll deduction in the amount of $50 per month, until the class is paid in full.
