Make One Change Program a Success

The Fauquier Health Wellness Center’s 12-week Make One Change Challenge that ended in April was a huge success. There were 155 participants in the five programs (Some focused on weight loss, others concentrated on eating healthier, getting more exercise, stress relief or smoking cessation). Many agreed to complete a pre and post-test in order to qualify for some nice prizes. A few highlights from the testing after just 12 weeks include:

- Average weight lost - 5.8 lbs

- Average body fat lost - 2.33%

- Average inches lost - 1.25 inches

- Average increase in strength - 13%

- Average increase in flexibility - 12.8%

- Average improvement in cardiovascular fitness - 18% !
