Get FIT is a 13-week fitness, weight loss and behavior change program run by the experts at FIT.  The goal of Get FIT is to help participants improve their fitness, lose body fat and implement health behavior changes that can be maintained for a lifetime.

Get FIT will be run virtual this spring! You can complete your workout at anytime and in the comfort of your own home! Get FIT involves 2 options.

Get FIT – 3 pre-recorded workouts/week OR Get FIT: LIVE – 2 LIVE and 1 pre-recorded class/week and access to our FIT to EAT program. The workouts are a balanced mix between cardiovascular and resistance training, the goal being to maximize weight loss from fat and improve daily functioning. A pair of dumbbells will be offered for pick-up.

To participate you need to be in good health and injury free. We will ask you to complete a medical history questionnaire and waiver. We may require a doctor’s clearance, if significant risks are identified.
