This program is designed to help you: 1) lose weight, 2) reduce body fat, 3) increase your confidence in achieving your fitness goals, 4) give you the knowledge and tools to continue a fitness program on your own after the conclusion of the program, and 5) finally improve your heath and overall quality of life!
Who is Eligible: This program is FREE & is available to all current UK students who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or more. BCTC students who have purchased a Johnson Center membership & meet the program criteria are also eligible. You must be a hard working individual and be able to dedicate yourself physically and mentally to our program during the spring semester. This program is not available to UK/BCTC faculty or staff.
Program Dates: January - April. This program will be held at the Johnson Center and will last 15 weeks straight. The final week of the program is during dead week so that it will not interfere with your final exams. Note: you will not be required to meet with your trainer during spring break, but will be required to continue workouts on your own during this week.
Nuts and Bolts of the Program: This program will focus on group training sessions headed up by a certified personal trainer. At the beginning of the program you will be placed in a small group based upon your availability (no more than 5 in each group). We will do our best to meet your scheduling needs, but please be aware we will only have one group that will meet between 5pm and 8pm due to the volume of users in the facility. We will offer a variety of time slots to fit everyone’s schedule. Your group will meet with a trainer twice a week, and you will have the same trainer for the entire length of the program. Your trainer will educate you on proper form and program design so that you can learn to design your own workouts and gain the confidence you need to continue a program on your own. Your trainer will design workouts and will be there to help keep you motivated every step of the way! In addition, you will be asked to complete workouts on your own with the support and motivation of your other group members. The goal is to give you the tools and knowledge so that you can start designing effective workouts on your own and walk away at the end of the program feeling confident to continue a program on your own.
You will also have a nutritional component of this program. Your trainers will work with you on a weekly basis, educating you on the basics of nutrition and healthy eating habits. In addition, Jill Kindy, a registered dietician at UK, will be meeting with each group, and answering your additional nutritional questions. She will also be available for individual nutritional sessions.
Finally, we will be tracking your progress throughout the program using our Microfit Fitness Assessment software, where we will be tracking your weight, BMI, body fat, circumference measurements, blood pressure and resting heart rate. You will be completing a total of 3 assessments during the 15-week program.
