Local News Stories

ZANESVILLE, Ohio – The start of a new year can mean new lifestyle habits after over-indulging during the holiday season. Weight loss tends to be at the top of the New Year’s Resolutions list for many and an area health and fitness complex is setting out to help you achieve your 2020 goals. The Muskingum County Family YMCA is hosting Winter Shred, an eight week weight loss program. Libby Hardwick, with the Muskingum County Family YMCA, says the program will include weekly at home workouts, healthy recipes, nutritional information, and weekly classes.

“We’re going to have weekly home workouts; we’re going to have recipes that are very healthy, basic nutrition information, Winter Shred Group exercise classes that will be once a week. This time, you won’t have to come in as frequently for weigh-ins; you only have to weigh-in once at the beginning and once at the end. And, there’s an awesome prize for the first place winner—which is a 200 dollar cash prize.”

The Winter Shred program will officially begin on January 6th and run until February 28th. The cost for YMCA members is $25; while non-members will receive a YMCA membership included with the cost of their $100 fee.

“Our kick-off party is going to be on Sunday, January the 5th from 5 to 7—and at that time, more information and hand-outs will be given out. Also included with the Winter Shred program is a membership for individuals that would sign up that are not members right now.”
