"Maintain, Don’t Gain" Health Improvement Challenge

The "Maintain, Don’t Gain!" Health Improvement Challenge is a 6-week program that encourages employees to maintain or lose weight through education on nutrition and fitness. Each participant will weigh-in at the beginning of the program and weigh-out at the end. The coordinator will track each participant’s weight at the beginning and again at the conclusion of the program.

This employer toolkit is especially popular over the holidays.
