Weight Watchers at Work starting new classes
Purdue's Weight Watchers at Work program offers a discount rate to help those looking either to achieve significant, long-term weight loss or just trying to shed a few pounds. Provided through the Division of Recreational Sports, the program provides an effective, proven path to change.
If a participant’s body mass index (BMI) is over 25, Human Resources will pay for half of the $186 class fee if participants attend 14 of 17 weigh-ins. Discount-eligible participants will pay $93. Those who do not complete at least 14 weigh-ins will receive a bill from Purdue's Accounts Receivable for $93. Participants are eligible for only one incentive in their lifetime. To calculate BMI, visit www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi.
Upcoming Weight Watchers classes:
* Tuesdays at noon-1 p.m.: Oct. 22-Feb. 25 in Stewart Center, Room 320
* Tuesdays at noon-1 p.m.: Nov. 5-March 18 in Physical Facilities Service Building, Room 1179 (change of time from previous class in same location)
* Thursdays at noon-1 p.m.: Nov. 21-March 27 in Physics Building, Room 298
The schedule for each of these allows for two weeks off during holiday periods.
