YMCA seeks weight management participants

December 23, 2013
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – The YMCA of Metro Atlanta is looking for women ages 21 to 60 to participate in a new weight management research program.

The goal is safe, effective and maintained weight loss through use of moderate exercise and changes in eating behaviors. There is no cost to qualified individuals.

This study is related to the Coach Approach, which was developed by the Y in 2003 as a highly supportive coaching process that helps build the habit of regular physical activity.

The program will be conducted at the Ed Isakson/ Alpharetta Family YMCA at 3655 Preston Ridge Road, Alpharetta.

Program participants must be female, 21 to 60 years old and have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 to 40. For example, a female 5 feet 4 inches tall would be required to weigh between 174 and 232 pounds. Participants also must not be exercising regularly (less than 20 minutes per week).

They must have a goal to lose weight, but are not presently be enrolled in another weight-loss program. Participants cannot be pregnant or planning to become pregnant, cannot be taking psychological or weight loss medications and cannot have a medical problem affecting eating, weight, metabolic rates or where calorie or fat restriction is a problem.

Study participants will receive full access to the YMCA for two years, including the swimming pool, wellness center and the walking track. The study begins Feb. 3, 2014.

Space is limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information or to see if you meet the inclusion criteria, contact the Ed Isakson/Alpharetta Family YMCA Wellness Director Sarah Samter at
