Build a Better Body is a weight loss program developed by the Institute for Woman’s Health and TWU Fitness and Recreation.  Students participate in either one-on-one meetings or group sessions on a weekly basis with nutritionists and health educators.  Each session provides the skills and education necessary in nutrition, fitness and behavior modification to be successful with your weight loss goals.   

One huge benefit of this program is the inclusion of one-on-one counseling with a nutritionist.  Think of it like nutritional personal training.

3)      Must complete a fitness assessment at the Student Recreation Center during the first and last weeks of the program.

Typical Week with Program:

Each week, you will meet with either your nutritionist or attend a group session.  Each time we meet, you will have the chance to establish goals, talk through potential obstacles and support each other along the way!  Group sessions will typically be active sessions; workout attire is required. 


$75.00  Sessions are once per week.  Prizes/incentives are awarded for consistency.  (Over $300 Value!)
